I am in complete agony much of the time with my back. I have no idea why, but when I wake up in the morning I am in an L shape and it takes me up to an hour to straighten out and stand up. It's excruciating. Walking is reaaaaaaaaallly painful. I therefore have some time to pass. Usually I have a few kind-hearted and well-intentioned friends who come up with all kinds of 'alternative' remedies, which I generally don't think much of (because they're untested, nonsensical and quite mad). But now it occurs to me that this is just the kind of help I need to laugh away the pain. Any wierd, 'alternative' remedies, anyone?
