I've read Healing Back Pain at least 3 times I feel like this is the solution, however after 3 good weeks I suddenly am going back to horrible pains/no new stress that I can think of/feeling a lot of anguish and sadness/any thoughts? I exercise twice daily and take tramadol at least once a day/so frustrating /like everyone I would like to have my normal life back it's unbelievable that the symptoms don't go away forever/my name is Debbie and I'm 56 yrs old.
