today: walked: 2.5 miles, 45 minutes

so good for the SI joint to have settled down and the back spasms to be gone already!

but much more troubling is my upper back / neck. i can walk forever, seems to be the only thing that gives me momentary relief. but can't sit, and trying to get ready for the school year is becoming next to impossible.

started a pred dosepack today. will report back later. but so far no negative side effects that i can tell (9 hours into day 1; 8 mg at 3 pm, 4 mg at 7 pm, 4 mg at 11 pm, and supposed to take another 8 mg at bedtime. then less each day for 6 days total. my feet feel better after all that walking than they ever do and my right knee, no impingement from my hamstring tendonitis. and my upper back feels a lot better. right now its just my neck along my spine that concerns me, and all those bizarre symptoms that are going along with it.
