Here are some simple little tricks I picked up a few years ago that have ended up being a life saver for neck/shoulder, low back, & foot pain.
Take 1-2 tennis balls and put them in a tube sock, tying off the sock close to the balls but not so tight they won't move. Then sit or stand with your back against a hard surface. Hold the empty end of the sock in your hand and drop the ball end between your shoulder & the wall, adjusting until you feel the "right" spot,
I hope this entry finds you feeling well!!
I have decided that when I am in pain, rather than resting and becoming less active, I need to GET active. I began a 4 week challenge in discipline and I have to say that a reduction in my Lupus symptoms is a benefit that I never expected! Check out my link HERE and the follow-up ones HERE and HERE....and HERE. =)

Do you remember the stiletto heels? You know...way back before we had Lupus and our feet could handle the torture? I do too. But after writing this post, I feel so much better! Hope it helps you too!! Click to read "Lupus Shoes"

I am 44, so I thought maybe perimenpause but sometimes it i don't know what to say could be lupus and what's not. Anyone else experience this?
