I thought the questionnaire answered that. Rheumatoid arthritis and the all over pain that goes with it made my back pain worse. Lost sleep (from sciatica) and activity requiring walking also exacerbated the pain. I am 7 months out of surgery. Healing has been extremely slow. But I feel so good. I can walk again.
