What happened over the next 3 months improved my quality of life. I kept a daily journal, and wrote down some notes on my progression while wearing these insoles:
First day: Feels a bit odd, I do feel the prongs, but by the end of the day, they were hardly noticeable.
Second day: Noticed I got a great night sleep for the first time in a long time. I feel well-rested. Unsure if the insoles are working?
End of the first week: I have significantly more energy, a bounce in my step, and have been getting fewer headaches (still not sure if there is a correlation though). I’m getting used to wearing them. They feel much more comfortable now than the first day!
Two weeks: I no longer feel the need for the daily Advil I was taking. The pain in my back has subsided to just an occasional throb here and there, and I have been walking more. I’ve even noticed that I’m comfortable standing for long periods of time.
One Month: I’m sitting straighter, and have next to no back pain at all. I feel I have a clear mind, fewer headaches, and basically no muscle pain. My wife is amazed by the transformation she’s seen in me and says I look like I’m back in my college days. We’ve gone back to dancing and had more date nights. No more staying at home due to my pain. I am a believer!
