I have been on this site for about 6 years. Today may have been the worst back pain I’ve experienced since 2011 when I first noticed it. I am a full- time employee which requires me to sit at a desk in an office all day. I’m also a part-time fitness instructor and have been for 34 years. I see people talking about meditating for hours/days and spending lots of “quiet time.” I don’t have the financial luxury of just not working for a while. Plus I actually like my job! My question is directed to anyone who has been able to work full-time and still was able to beat this pain. Please, no judging... I am about ready to talk to a spine doctor. I cried off and on all morning due to the burning pain...I’ve done all the books, programs, etc. Can anyone help? Again, please don’t judge me...I’m suffering enough.
