facet joint L5-S1

I have had this symptom for 14 years got diagnosed in December 2014 by a physiotherapist at holy cross hospital so I now do a exercise regime in a hydrotherapy pool which works as you gain muscle to help with your conditions and now I have found a painkiller that works for me is tramulief sr 100mg twice a day so mine is 9am and 9pm I now sleep for around 8hrs give or take sometimes it could be 6hrs or 7 hrs before that it was 4hrs or 5hrs but have to make sure you do not over do it rest

Wow wolfdog this is excellent news and long may it continue. The pool is a great place to strengthen muscles without too much pain!

Pacing yourself is a huge part of managing your pain. Rest before you start hurting which is often hard.

Thanks for sharing this good news with us
