Take it easy Dennis. I have no special remedy for you for this one as I have had a problem all my life and it comes and goes.
Right now mine is visiting agian.

I do wish you speedy recovery as nothing is a debilitating as the pain from a bad back.

His back hurts because he has the weight of engagement on his shoulders. LOL. Get well soon Dennis, and congrats.

Congratulations on your engagement. Best wishes to Patti.

We hope you can fully recover before you start any heavy woodworking. The desire to “get back at it” can wreak havoc on the back!

Then again, maybe that’s how you got the bad back in the first place. :-)
