Hi all, I know it sounds silly to even admit but I’ve come to realize so much of my low back pain is coming from daily clenching and tension I’m putting into my lower half. I am convinced I clench while sleeping and have even caused calf issues (peroneal tendinitis) by toe pointing while I sleep. But I find I’m doing while I’m awake too, mostly when I’m standing still cause I catch myself! I used to be super active and athletic, fitness instructor actually, and now I have trouble even standing upright sometimes as every tiny muscle near my sacrum/low back feels tight and I’ve had every symptom of piriformis syndrome. How do you teach the muscles you know you’re putting your tension into to actually relax? I went out to the backyard this weekend to rake up some leaves (gently) just to get outside and get my mind off all the news and now today every little movement that comes from my hip and glute area is talking to me and making me fearful that searing pain is coming next. I don’t mean to post to complain but if someone can offer some advice on how to remedy this, please let me know. I would be very thankful. I am working through a few books right now including GPD, Defying the Verdict, Backsense and Rapid Recovery. P.S. I did feel like I was making some small progress until recently with our current pandemic. I see posts and I know it’s affecting so many of us with added worry and tension.
