Hi

I would recommend consulting a PT or a trainer for a stretching and strengthening program one which you can do at work. By increasing these you increase your endurance and increase blood flow to muscles and joints thereby increasing oxygen delivery. This reduces pain in every muscle. It may take a while but a few sessions should give you skills and if you do them faithfully you will get results. In addition, if you can the long acting tylenol in the am can relieve the acute pain. I would give both a six month trial under your doctors knowledge and see if it helps. Finally heated massage for the chair can be helpful you can put a jacket over it and plug it in only when needed if you are concerned about using it at work....good luck I am really glad that you got back to work....!!
