For the last six months I have tried my best to be the perfect type 2 diabetic. I have dieted. I have watched my carb intake. I have exercised. I have not touched a french fry, doughnut or basket of tortilla chips since October. No non-diet drink has crossed my lips. I have lost over forty pounds, dropped my A1c from 9.6 to 5.9 and reduced my waist size by almost six inches. I am off all medication, my doctor loves me, my family is impressed, and I am about sick of it all. I want a day off from the new healthy me. I want to come home, lay on my couch and watch a movie.

The only person who can safely answer your question is a doctor who can review your and your family's medical history, discuss your symptoms with you, and conduct a complete examinat...
Spinal pain, or back pain, is very common in the Western world. In fact, it affects up to 80 percent of people at least one time in their life. Usually, the pain is nonspecific , not caused by any particular trauma or injury, or there isn't any body part or tissue that has been noticeably injured. Most often, nonspecific back pain goes away after three to 12 months, although most people do end up having more back pain later. And, among those people, an average of 16 percent experience back pain that's bad enough to affect their every day life. This means the majority of people with nonspecific back pain don't usually have any long-term problems and don't even seek medical help. Many studies have been done that have helped doctors understand things like catastrophizing (feeling that things worse than they really are), depression and feeling badly about oneself as a result of chronic pain. It's been found that the amount of psychological distress felt by a patient affects how the patient...
