Magic sneeze

Elizabeth "Betsy" S. -

As a child, I broke my tail bone jumping rope. For years, I suffered with the physical pain as well as the emotional pain from my doctor telling me it was no big deal.

Then the craziest thing happened. I was in a tanning bed and I had an incredible urge to sneeze. Not wanting to hit my head on the bed, I held back my sneeze as much as possible but the force seemed to shoot down my spine and my tail bone 'popped' - then I got a fantastic cool rush feeling down my legs. It was AWESOME!!

I lived pain free for 15 years. Unfortunately, 3 days ago the pain came back-just out of the blue. Looks like its time to start working on that tan again!!!

Good luck to us all! This pain is no fun....
