: Colleen-- You're lucky you could get all the tests;
: I've had it for 30 yrs, off and on. Staying healthy, and well rested works wonders. Back & torso stretching exercises too,along with lungs- deep breaths, then hold x 3 etc.
:: So far I've learned: imagine it's like scarring.. lining loses it's elasticity, stays cramped,& thickens;pain comes from "tearing".. for me anyway. Scarring is permanent;keep it at a minimum. Also:have a supply of "back plasters" on hand (old time remedy)from J&Johnson... have to order from pharmacist... works wonders. And sit up.. straight... at this keyboard,hey!
