Well.. I have lots of back pain and every morning is a new and interesting adventure in the world of pain. I've had back problems for EVER. But lately its most definately worse than ever. I have a lot of numbness in my hands too.. but not so much in the morning.. very stiff but not really numb.. that comes as the day wears on.
Just wanted to say.. I don't know what advice to give other than and nice warm shower.. but you're getting that naturally from your weahter. LOL. Hey at least its warm!! Its kinda chilly here in Indiana and we're getting rain too. If its really warm I'm sure a heating pad or bed buddy doesn't sound really appealing but it would probably help.
Hope you feel better soon!!!!
KitKat, Patti was referring to a Bed Buddy...they sell these at Walgreen's and other places...not a man! You heat them in the microwave and they give off moist heat. You can make your own by taking a tube sock, filling it 2/3's full of raw rice and tying a knot at the end.
Thanks for my morning laugh!

Kat, you do NOT wet the rice. There is moisture already in the rice and when you heat it, it gives off moisture. Just put raw rice in the sock, knot the end, and microwave it. I have a rice pillow that my massage therapist made for me and it's wonderful, too. Enjoy!
