Hi Sherry:

When you have your adhesions lysed, do you get a pain free period with no back pain? Why do you think mornings are worse for you? Why would adhesions act up at this time? Mornings are notoriously bad for people with rheumatological problems-morning stiffness is one of the things they ask you about. With me, I get the oddest situation. When I was waking up with a lot of pain in the lower right side I would get up, expecting to have to hobble to the bathroom, but I would be almost normal! Yet lying down I was in agony.
