"Well, without being a medical professional, it does not seem perhaps too unexpected that if you have some condition which your body's immune system is fighting then if you don't get sleep then maybe the immune system is not so strong and…"
"Just goes to show how this thing varies so much ... mine sometimes feels better after a run, isn't noticeably affected by walking or standing. Sitting is the killer. And generally gravity & spinal compression throughout the day I…"
