The pill that cured my low back pain

October 30, 2018

 

After a few weeks of an overzealous abdominal workout on a hardwood floor, I developed gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), and low back pain.  Anxious about my first real injury and bout of pain, I couldn’t sleep. I was restless at night, and woke up exhausted. The GERD worsened, I couldn’t eat much, and stopped exercising.  Previous routine activities such as bending to pick up an object from the floor, triggered GERD, and exacerbated the back. Fearful of disease lurking within, I visited a primary care physician.  Tests revealed nothing.

I gradually returned to my previous exercise routine, and found sleep.  Sometimes I would come home, the back aching, unable to eat, and yearn for bed.  Instead of popping a pill, I slept to ease the pain. In the morning, I would feel almost normal.  I feel much better now, thanks to the healing nature of sleep.
