I have suffered from this, Adhesive Arachnoiditis, RSD, CRPS, and chronic issues listed herein for decades. Usually relief while doing some of these things, then if I can finish the swim or exercise it is worse the same day and for sure next day. Some medication, mild opiate helps me to endure the physical activities. My injuries initially were iatrogenic in nature, then those were compounded over the years due to use. No cure.
