If I stand very long or walk very far I have severe lower back pain. I'll also add that I have rheumatoid arthritis, disc degeneration and fibromyalgia. My doctor and I have tried everything and the only thing that works is oxycodone. I only take on an as needed basis and thankfully don't have to do that more than about 2-3 times a week on average.

I started yoga 3 months ago, and it did wonders to my back. I highly recommend it to everyone with back problems

From your picture...you look like a nice pliable youngster. I'm 73. I have trouble reaching my knees...when I'm sitting down.

Ironic...sitting is the only time my back doesn't hurt. My doctor said he'd be willing to get me hooked on Oxycontin. I told him I'd pass...Jack Daniel's seems to be working...for now.

I know I can't give medical advice but have any of you thought about going to a chiropractor?

I have read parts of that book and it is correct that keeping your muscles strong is what supports the skeletal system and keeps it in line but when your unable to do the work or exercising isn't enough having a chiropractor adjust your back can keep your muscles in line and pain free.

I herniated the disc between the L5 and L4 in 1996 and kept laying block for several years after that by seeing a chiropractor regularly. I loved masonry work and just couldn't give it up until I hurt my upper back and decided it was time to move on.

The way I look at is he kept me from having surgery and becoming a drug addict.

And you're right Bounty, alcohol is one of the best short term pain killers out there

When I was 26 (1969) I was moving a refrigerator and "shazam", something let go in my back. Took a few weeks before I could walk like "regular". In 1973 I was lifting something I shouldn't have and my back made this loud noise...like a .45 going off and I hit the floor. Didn't get back up for about 6 weeks.

After that, my back was touchy. I'd ignore the pain...and then my back would spasm up, dropping me to the floor again. I soon learned my limits.

Retiring from work made me less active. I put on weight...which exacerbated the back problem. I'm now in this catch-22 where less activity, due to back pain, produces less time on my feet. Less time on my feet produces more weight. It's a viscous circle.

I'd like to do this LC/HF thing and see how that works out...but I just can't hang out in the supermarket and shop new recipes. By the time I'm through shopping...I'm two clicks away from falling on the floor at the checkout counter!

Back pain rules my life!
