I am having success with pain.
I have 2 disc prolapses, the usual L4.5 L3.4 and coming along nicely is S1/L5
I have lost weight. I started going for a walk every day (I know its difficult for people living in the UK) 40 Minute there and 40 minute back. I started to lose weight, although I seem to be stuck at the moment despite doing 3 hr walks.
Also I am eating differently. I am not eating bread, pasta or rice.
I have a good breakfast with fruit and a fruit drink or tomato juice. At lunchtime I have soup or a salad and a yogart, I don't particularly go and buy slimming this and that, and I love Danone creamy yogarts with either fruit or breakfast cereal.
I may even, now have a mince pie at 3.30
In the evening, I just eat nornmally except I don't eat carbs.
I lost a stone in 4 weeks but as I say I have got stuck now.
But. ... this is the important thing, I have not been in pain as much OK I know that its 9 in the morning, 2 in the afternoon and 10 at night when I take Pazital and lyrica but otherwise, I can round the city near me for 3 hrs and I am ok. I don't know whether this is appropriate or not but I bought myself a good pair of Reebok trainers and I wear the appripriate gear in the city. So what, I would have minded a year ago but not now
I know that losing weight is the answer to my pain.
