I haven't been here in a while. I previously had sciatic, back pain, piriformis syndrome, etc and struggled with it for years. It finally went away last year and the shoulder started acting up. Well, that finally resolved and I've been doing really well for the last 4 months. Until Sunday. I'm trying to start running again and I think my mind just knows that I'm scared of my sciatica/back pain coming back. I jogged a few days last week and it's back. For the first time in a year, all of those awful lower back pains are back. I guess I'll be reading up, doing my mental exercises, etc. And running. I won't let this deter me! Wish me luck!
