Hey have you thought about seeing a chiropractor? I know, I was real leary about them at first too! But, ever since I was diagnosed with a herniated disc in my neck and a pinched nerve in my lower back,(for a couple of years now), I just dealt with it and took muscle relaxers and ibuprofen. I was also taking Wellbutrin for a couple of years. But, when it started hurting so bad and my next option was shots in my neck and/or surgery I wanted to try an alterntive. I went to a chiropractor and eventually got rid of my pain and got off all medication! I was amazed! I am a firm believer that you don't always have to have surgery! But, don't get me wrong if you need surgery that may be your only option. But, I would at least get a second and/or third opinion! I got my pain under control and had not been to a doctor for about 6 months. Then this weekend I painted one of our bedrooms and aggravated it! I woke up in so much pain I couldn't get out of bed! We just moved here a few months back! So, I found a chiropractor, saw him today and I already feel so much better! It will take several visits, but we have a plan and I am on the road to recovery! Good Luck and I will pray for you! Let me know how it turns out! P.
