I turn 50 next mth, walk, swim or cycle regularly to keep my weght in check Been for scans for my lower back and nothing shows, seen physios, doing stretches daily, tried anti inflams etc. also my neck and shoulders doing the same and my knees give me spike now and then as well. Getting up through the night several times to pee now too! There is just no of getting around this ageing thing. It's starting to have an impact on my moods, sometimes grumpy as hell, or so my wife says. I am not totally incapacitated so i don't want to sound like a winger, but i can feel the onset of the ageing process, not good as the mind is a powerful thing.
