Edited: I awoke with no back pain today. I haven't had any back pain during the time of my colitis flare-up, thank goodness! I hate to say it, but those old people medical adjustable beds you see infomercials for (which they have in hospitals) actually did me some good.
However, I worked my first shift at Starbucks today since falling ill. I ended the shift with definite aching and discomfort-- a tightness in my lower back and a stressful low-intensity tightness all the way up to my shoulders. I took one of my oxycodones and have found some relief.
Must return to stretching in the coming days.
