It Feels Better When I Rest
Most often, positions that relieve pressure on your lower back tend to feel the best. These positions include reclining, lying down and using a pillow under your knees while your sleep.
It Hurts More When I Sit
The discs in the lower back receive 3 times the pressure when sitting versus standing. Try working at a standing desk to see if it makes a difference for you.
It Hurts More When I'm Active
Golfing, gardening and other activities that require bending, twisting and lifting can cause a flare-up. With DDD, the pain will often decrease soon after finishing your activities.
