I just happened to stumble across this site while not enjoyin another night of being wide awake at all hours of the morning, it is not due to my back pain which to be honest having suffered it fot the past six years, im a 24 year old female, is saying something. I still to this day have no explanation for what caused my back pain, it just happened one day i was getting up from the couch and felt something i had not felt before it is hard to describe it now as it was 6 years ago but i kept having this niggle and it gradually became worse and excrutiating over time. I have been to the doctor and to three different people one a physical therapist, a neuromuscular therapist, and also another guy who works selling MBT runners. None of this has either cured me or given me a reason for it. The only incident i can think would have been a few months before i felt this first twinge i had been at horse college and had a fall when my horse bolted and i landed on my back,but im not sure if that is why because it was a few months before.
I had then started waitressing for the first time and thought maybe that didn't help either.
Can anyone give me any idea?
At the moment i am unemployed and as nothing physical is required of me my back seems to be okay, just writing that makes me think i could be lazy and it is all in my head but really i dont think i could dream up the pain i have endured with it over the years.
I want to return to try and work with horses but it has been at least three years since i have worked with them because the work was too demanding and my back was not able for it.
Now though on top of this i have never been great at sleeping, and i find myself spending the majority of my life so far wide awake all night and sleeping half the day when i fall asleep. I have always had trouble waking early and have slept in for so many important things it's ridiculous.
Can anyone help me please or any advice you could give would be appreciated.
Thank you xxx
