Working with Pain

May 27, 2018 9:52 PM

I am currently working part time at a bank Desk job that literally causes my neck down to my lower back to ache like heck. I alternate using Celebrex 1 day push through with no medications 1 day , then Tramadol when I get off the next day. I take PT 2x a week, stretch, exercise, use heat/cold packs, use electro therapy pain relief,massage ball,a core performer stretch exerciser, and I’m due to start aquatic therapy soon but sometimes the whole back pain takes 3-5 days to lighten up. But I still go to work 6hr days 5x’s a week never calling out because I have already been on medical leave for 3 weeks for another issue 3 1/2 months ago. My spine conditions or chronic/Degenerative . My family and friends just wander if I will ever wave the white flag....cry Uncle or just call out permanently real soon..... I’m trying hard to be patient but it’s getting painfully hard
