Hello, mainebestlife.

Your input here is appreciated very much. Just be aware that some of the posts in this WebMD Back Pain Community are months, even years old with the original poster never coming back. Look in the upper right hand of the post to see how long ago the discussion was posted. In this case, you will see that this was posted 1 year ago. To see when a poster's last activity was, click on their avatar picture or user name.

Thank you, and I pray you are having a blessed and wonderful Wednesday.
