I am a female 46 years of age single living in Costa Rica. I have sole responsibility for my 129 acre Commercial, sheep farm, commercial magostan fruit and hard woods farm. I do everthing i can to not do any work in/out of the farm that would cause swelling, inflamation or pain. Facts are facts; at times i have no choice but to do work within the farm that i know will cause severe pain and may not be able to sit or stand that evening . "You gotta do what you gotta do".
The pain is due to Severe stenosis between L4 and L5 and moderate between L3 and L4. Both unbearable to tolerate. Any suggestions to help reduce the pain?
Sleep positions? Type of stretching? Hot and cold water therapy?
Some times I can't get out/in bed. Some times I need hold my arms to sit on the toilet.
I believe strongly as well in alternative remedies.
My Dr. said physical therapy won't help because my muscle structure is great and my bone anaysis density is as good as you can have for the procedure.
