    Hi @shortshorts121
    Hope you are not in to much pain today. I find that warm baths help (at least for a little while anyway). Have you spoken to your doctor who maybe can increase pain relief for the really bad days?... Probably a silly question but just thought I would ask  :). I have found that taking Vitamin D with Calcium does help.
    Hope you have a lovely day 
    Take care
