This is one of the problems with my back. It makes it very difficult to get a good nights sleep.
Partly the reason for starting this blog. Gives me something to do in the wee small hours of the night when all around me is quiet.
I’m trying to avoid taking prescription painkillers because I hate the damn things. They don’t really work for any length of time, just that initial buzz followed by the slide back down to pain again.
I’ve been using some homeopathic preparations and I’m looking into some new methods.

(Watch out for my blog on Pilates… the wife has had the video for over a year, and one day we might get to actually watch it).

A drink of hot chocolate and a hot lavender oil bath seems to help, though I am getting the point of drinking the bath water and bathing in chocolate to see if that helps any more.
