Thank you for all the information.The article is indeed very interesting and informative.I have been suffering from a stiff neck and lower back pain for quite sometime now.having a stiff neck and back pain is becoming a part of our lives.These aches usually keep me away from activities,which I would otherwise like to participate in.I enjoy cycling and playing tennis.As both are strenuous exercises,the pain sets in and at times becomes so acute that it simply becomes unbearable.This is when a friend suggested that i should consult a chiropractor who will certainly be able to help me.

I loved this info..especially the solutions section. I don't think I have chronic pain but I do get pain in the low back, neck and shoulders and joints to a moderate degree depending on the day.

I have had chronic pain for years as well as going into anaphylaxis for unknown reasons. I cut out all grains and pain all gone! Took me awhile to find out wheat is in a lot of beauty stuff like shampoo so if you have tried grain free and it didn't work look in your bathroom! Within a week I went from not being able to walk to running around the park! I am 36 yrs old! I have always had some sort of pain for as long as I remember but it got really bad about 10 yrs ago. I have been told by more than one dr that grains were not the problem but they didn't know what was! Also had at least 10 ER visits due to anaphylaxis I have seen a lot of drs!
