It's another day. Everybody has their expectations for how the day will go. The weather is nice and I'm doing fairly well all things considered. I mean the chronic pain that I live with, and no, it's not my spouse, tends to dominate my "items to deal with" list. My chronic back pain sometimes restricts my entire day. My leg pain affects the way I walk. My foot pain affects the way I stand. The burning sensation in my back, legs and feet, affects the way I sit. The neuropathy is a constant companion; Just another piece to my chronic pain puzzle. It takes a deliberate, dedicated effort to do things I used to be able to do seemingly without thinking and very little effort. Android that's on a good day. There are of course bad days too, especially when flareups happen...AND PAIN FLAREUPS DO OCCUR. But today is a better day. So it looks like my chronic pain won't keep me from participating in lif today. My legs won't hurt pain bad, my feet won't burn pain bad. The feeling to walking barefoot in nails and broken won't be pain intense; I'll be able to walk and not have the pain with each step, stop me in my tracks all but taking my breath away. I'm not alone in feeling this kind of pain. There are many people who live in and with various types to severe chronic pains.

Being that young, my parents didn’t think I was hurt badly enough to need to see a doctor and that the aches would ease up.

How long have they actually been suffering but youth and activity lead them to cover up the pain? Once you start to really think back you realize the number of times when you felt a twinge or ache but dismissed it. As you grow older and experience lifestyle changes that lead to being more sedantary, the pain flareups occur more often. One thing that can help to prolong the onset of back pain issues is if you manage to stay active and in good physical shape. Exercising regularly, avoiding extra weight gain and maintaining muscle mass and strength similiar to when you were in your 20′s can go a long way in delaying back pains. If you aren’t fortunate enough to have stayed in shape or as active as you should have, your pain onset will happen and when it does, your pain will fall into one of two categories.
