Hubby and I have been together for 5 years on July 7, seems like it has been forever, and in all that time there have been very few trip, long work weeks where he has NOT complained about how bad his back hurts. In fact, he can’t remember a time when it didn’t hurt.
A lot of nights I would sit at the base of his back and rub it until I couldn’t rub it any more, with lotions and creams that are suppose to help sooth and relieve the pain, tension and ache. We have bought over the counter medications, from regular pain medications to those marketed towards back pain.
About 3 years ago he finally had enough and went to the doctor, if your husband is the big tough guy type you know how major this is. He was sent for an x-ray and then we wanted a couple days to see what was said. We weren’t expecting what we heard, and not over the phone. He has spina bifida. Therefore, he will have back pain for the rest of his life.
After that we we decided to get a new tempurpedic bed in hopes that it would help give him some comfort. I hadn’t realized buying a bed would involve so many chooses. I’m not completely sure if the bed helps, he will always have back back but at least now we have a comfy bed to sleep in.
