PCOS Back Ache

Okay today was a rough day. Probably started early in the morning. I had a hard time sleeping last night. It seems like I woke up every hour. My lower back paid was bad enough that I had to keep getting up just to walk around. I stayed in bed until noon but my back hurt all day.

I hate it when you get that aching pain that you just can't reach. I know it's just a flare up of a cyst but still... makes you hate life. PCOS sucks!

Now I'm tired but can't sleep... aaahhhh! LOL
