I honestly feel ok about things right now, no panic or anxiety today. But for the last 6-7 hours my back, lower and up the right side only have been absolutely painful. I've put my tens unit on, I've had hubby rub it, I've put pillows behind me, I've laid on the floor, turning every which way. Nothing is helping. I've taken my night meds to try and relax me. Nothing. I can hardly sit here. I've never had this much back pain before. It always hurts because of my AS but not this bad. I know you can carry stress in your muscles, but to this extent? I know most of you are in bed already, but me, miss night owl lately, am not unfortunately. Anybody got any ideas? I'll try anything.
