A WOMAN who has the posture of a prawn cannot find a reason for her mysteriously persistent back pain.
Hannah Tomlinson is at a loss as to the cause of her constant lumbar agony, despite the fact she always sits bent double over her desk with her spine curved over like Quasimodo.
Tomlinson said: “Every day I have this strange discomfort in my lower back. It always kicks in when I sit completely slouched down in my chair to the point where my head is level with the desk. Wish I knew where it came from.
“Then, bizarrely, as I enter the fifth consecutive hour hunched over my laptop while making no effort to straighten myself out, my shoulders start to ache, too. I wonder if the two are connected.
“I’ve tried everything to ease the pain, from curling over while sitting on an ergonomic chair, to buying but not using an orthopaedic pillow and even thinking about seeing a chiropractor, but none of it’s worked. My back clearly can’t be helped so I’ll have to suffer forever.”
Friend Jack Browne, said: “I’ve literally never seen Hannah sit in a remotely upright position. I can’t picture what she looks like with her chin up and her shoulders back, and I doubt she can anymore.”
