    Hi there london80,
    I have spina bifida and suffer from pain. Like you it hurts when I stand or sit. The thing that used to give me relief was walking but now I have cysts growing in spine which are growing and causing my legs to go numb. I can’t recommend medication as I’m not a doctor but what really helps me is that I have been taking CBD oil, which I have be taking for sometime, and combined with meditation and reading a book called rethinking pain, which is an eye opener this has helped a lot.

    I was just wondering if anyone had any home remedies or tips on how they deal with pain or to help me feel less uncomfortable.
