One of those, "Is this only me?" posts...Between Mebeverine and diet regulation, I'm fairly well controlled most of the time, but get the odd flare up due to stress. My other half spotted an interesting correlation this morning. I often get a flare up after suffering back problems (lower back round L4/5). I can't imagine a direct muscular connection, as we're talking striated and smooth muscle, but am wondering if there may be a connection.Has anyone else noticed a correlation, or is it just that having a bad back stresses me and sends me reaching for the gameboy charger as a result?
