I woke up this morning and I can barely move. Everytime I move I’m having sharp pains in my lower back. I have back problems but I’ve never had them flare up just because. I’m going to talk to my doctor today. I think it is severe muscle tension. I had to force myself to go on a walk today and try and loosen it up. It’s always something lol. My crazy brain has already tried to connect it with colon cancer. I’ve also had about four or five different x rays on my back and it is fine sort of. I mean there is definitely some damage but nothing too serious. Monday is not a fun day I guess.
Back Pain: I woke up this morning and I... - Anxiety and Depre...
Maybe you slept in an odd position that caused your back to stiffen.
Honestly when I was first told all my pain was caused by anxiety I didn’t believe the doctors but after doing a lot of research I learned that anxiety can cause just about any symptom imaginable. For example my allergies are worse but the allergist said nothing had changed. I then learned most people with anxiety develop or have worsening allergies. I’ve learned to accept that anything is possible with anxiety. It doesn’t make the symptoms any less unpleasant but at least I know there isn’t anything physically wrong.
Sending easy and relaxation. I am 7 sessions in on this program you may want to look into. I already feel my mind calming, though they say it takes close to 30 treatments to see real impact. myoptimalbrain.com/
