I irritated my body today, therefore I needed to “stretch it out” in layperson’s terms.

Do I feel 100% now? No, I don’t. I’m still a bit tender, but I know I will wake up pain free in the morning.
I am not suggesting this is the right solution for everyone. Part of managing our conditions is about learning what works for us as individuals.
