    That actually would explain a lot. I hope he can find some permanent relief soon.

    If I had to talk to those people, I'd use painkillers, too.

    I get knee pain hiking that has really put a damper on backpacking which is something I really love. I can not imagine back pain. I have actually called myself fortunate on many occasions that my pains are not back pain.

    I am not so lucky. My dad and I both have extreme back pains.

    I need painkillers just to even listen to Perry rant and rave. When Palin is added in the mix, I need a stiff drink to mix with them.

    As a woman with degenerative disc disease it could have been necessary. We do not know the whole story. Gossip and judging are two things that God speaks against right? Correct me if I am wrong. As Christians we should pray for his healing. Not laugh at him for his personal troubles. God bless you.

    The posted article states that he had spinal fusion surgery and that in December he was "both mentally and physically back in the game."

    Why is this important anyway? Perry is no longer running for President.
