Hi All, Being vertical, and sitting especially, bring on my neck pain. For a few days now, I've been combatting this condition more aggressively. For years, I think I've subtly avoided true commitment on this point... I break up my 'vertical' time with little 'horizontal' breaks on the couch or bed, or take walks (which I'm less anxious about than sitting still for extended periods). So, it hurts. A lot. And, as you all know... the pain sensation is just a small portion of the horror of the pain experience. But this is what I need to do right? It's normal for a person to go about their day mostly vertical eh? Sitting for a few hours here, walking there, etc? I think I associate every vertical moment with added weight on my 'degenerating' discs and therefore future pain. Avoidance has not worked. I'm just going to push through. It sucks. But so what? This is part of TMS treatment right?
