That pain in your back may not be coming from your back. Especially if you've also got pain in your hips, shoulders, and suffer from migraines too.
What's happening is your brain has the "pain volume" turned up too high. You're hypersensitive to sensations, so where your friend Mary may not be feeling pain after sitting in a chair for 2 hours. you won't be able to do it at all. You'll have to get up and move.
So what do you do to turn down the volume?
The 2 best things are sleep and activity.
If you can get enough rest, the brain has the ability to turn down the chemicals that make you hypersensitive. It can be hard to get comfortable enough to sleep at night, but whatever it takes to make that happen - it's a good idea to do it.
Activity....any kind of movement....is also a way of changing your brain chemistry. Yes, it can be difficult to move....but it's the thing that will also change your brain chemistry.
Is there a system that can help change your brain chemistry while you're awake, and you find movement difficult?
