Do you ever ask yourself the question why your chronic back pain flares to severe levels,only to calm back down to pre pain flare levels a few weeks later?
I ask my myself these questions,every time I go through a severe pain flare...
Did I cause the flare?
Was it something I did..? Was it the way I bent down?
Did I over do it with my activities ?
Is it to do with the emotional state of my mind?
Is it because I rested to much, or didn't rest enough Inbetween activities of daily living?
Has my back took a turn for the worst?
Has something changed ? Do I need another MRI ?
Will my back keep flaring matter what I do?
Do I need to change my meds?or wait it out?
Do I see my spinal surgeon every time I have a severe flare ?
Will there ever be a time when the pain doesn't flare to severe levels?
I'd love to hear your thoughts and experiences on this matter ...
