  • I also went out trick or treating with my two boys 5 and 3 and I can now as you said feel my heart beat from mid back down I'm kinda used to this I feel this way every night when I go to bed wether I have a "good" day or a "bad" day its always the same and I'm sorry to tell ya I have not a clue how to get rid of it I just take a sleeping pill and drift away . If you hear something that fixes this pm me please because it sux.
  • I get this sometimes as well. It might help to lay on your stomach with a pillow under your hips and let just your feet and maybe a little of your shins hang off the bed. This opens up the nerve roots. If you feel pain in your back, adjust until you get comfy, maybe add an extra pillow... This won't fix anything but it might help for the time being until you see your doc... Good luck!!!
