Beginning in November 2014, I started to have constant pain in my right low back and hip. I chalked it up at the time to going “too fast too soon” in terms of working out – did I pull something in a tough workout and didn’t realize it? Was my body really not as strong as it used to be at age 29?
I’ve never dealt with chronic pain before, so having this issue was eye opening and depressing at the same time. No matter what I did, I couldn’t figure out what caused it, why it was continuing to happen, and how I could make it stop. As you may infer from my blog genre and beliefs on healthy living, it wasn’t ideal for me to pop 4 Tylenol a day or Vicodin (which one doctor tried to prescribe!). So, I began my long journey to find the cause, and cure, of my ongoing pain. Little did I know, the answer was quite simple.
