I am now 16 months post reversal and back in a pretty decent place – maybe 75% recovered. However, driving long distances still sets me back. I work with an excavting/mining company and often times have to drive all over the state of Nevada looking at various jobs. I notice anytime I’m on the road longer then a couple hours pain becomes worse… It will then stay at heightened levels for several days then subside back to normal levels.
I know some of you have experienced increased pain with driving… I’m trying to figure out what makes this happen – my best guess is long periods of small vibrations somehow cause pain to spike. Any input on this? Anything you’ve done that has helped pain while driving?
