Perhaps you thought your back pain was attributed to carrying too many groceries or toting your toddler on your hip. Did you know that it could be a result of high financial stress as well? An AP-AOL poll found that among people who complained of financial stress, 38% had muscle tension and back pain. Another 24% had headaches. Instead of reaching for that aspirin, find a money buddy to share your financial challenges or sign up for SIMPLY MONEY, a weekly money group to help you build your own positive money community. ~~~ Galia Gichon is an independent personal financial expert and founder of Down-to-Earth Finance.
