    I’m certinaly not as active as I youst to be. I do stretch, exerise, youga poses most days and even during the day along with heat. I do some work and then use the heating pad then more working and heat.. the heat seems to help loosen me up. The cold effects me right away and I get stiff. And I also still have hot flashes on a regular basics all day and night. I had a total hysterectomy in 2001. And from that point I have been getting worse. Sometime I feel like one side of my body is shifting.

    My back pain stems from tearing my cruciate ligament which the doctors refused to repair because they would not believe that it was the cause of my back pain. I have been gradually improving over the last ten years.
