Something is different today that has reduced my pain significantly. I need to determine what it is so I may repeat it.
For weeks I've had moderate pain plus migraines that have made it difficult for me to function at work. I considered taking today off. Instead I took naproxen on waking, had a hot shower and went to the office. Work today was different than usual. Instead of sitting at my desk alone in a cubicle, I had to go to a planning meeting in another building. I walked. Then I discussed issues with colleagues that I like. I walked back to my cubicle and felt invigorated, probably from both the walk and the comradery. Its Friday afternoon and I'm full of energy and my pain is minimal.
