When I was 18, I was diagnosed with degenerative disk disease and had surgery on my back. I have always been cautious about weight because 5 lbs can affect me and I always uses proper lifting techniques. Usually, once a year, my back is stiff for a day or two during weather changes in the fall/winter. This last week, the weather changes have made me stiff. I have already had my yearly xray and there is no noticable change. Is the weather bothering anyone else?
