There are a few things that I did and it benefitted me.I set up a reminder in my Outlook calendar to remind me every 10-15 minutes to get up from my PC and move around in the room. Another thing which i did was started stretching exercises in the morning and also for some time in the evening.

I have had lower back pain just above and around my hips. It s more painful if I m bending down, and sitting. The best remedy for it seems to be walking but even then I have slight pain. I ve always had back problems but am usually able to get rid of it through. Message, excercise or chiropractic. I ve spent $600 already on these things and still gave severe pain around my hips...sometimes the pain travels to my neck. What could be causing this pain?

The other problem I have is the way I find my self wetting my under pants or the urgency to urinate and no sure if urine is coming out till I hear it falling. Cant get up from the sofa or chair eith out help, or with out pain. The back of my neck also started to get numb and very painful, my arms also like my legs have lost almost all strainght. Please help me understand. Iam 54 female. Thank you maria

two months ago I began with an upper respiratory infection. I temporarily lost my voice, but this resolved quickly. I then began having palpitations, anterior neck pain, headaches, fatigue. I took a full course of Augmentin, but once stopped, all symptoms continued again. Now I have palpitation that are intense, and wake me out of a sound sleep. My heart thumps all night, and I can tell it skips beats. My anterior neck will have an odd pain, and my left lymph node is swollen again. My sinuses are chronically infected it seems as well. The headache throbs, and the pain is moderate.
