On day 33 of SEP and still struggling with a very painful low back spasm. This was not the original reason that I started to do this program, but it is a symptom that I have had previously. I finally relinquished my "perfectionistic" stance and decided to take an Advil, thinking that that would just take the edge off of my excruciating, doubling over pain, but it hasn't. I have also noticed in the past that many "insomnia drugs" never really did much for dealing with my insomnia either, so I got to thinking. If I don't have true physical pain or true insomnia, does it make sense that these drugs would not help? If my mind is causing these problems, the strength of a medication may not be able to compete with the strength of my mind to hold on to these issues? Has anyone noticed this?
