I'm in constant pain from time I get up until I go to sleep. Here lately it's been a lot of pain all the time. On a scale of 1 - 10 I used to get a lot of 3 days. Now it's mostly 5 - 7 with some 8 days.
I own and run a sod farm so I am very active. Work on equipment. Handle sod, chemicals and parts. Drive equipment. I also do yard work around the house.
