I am Ralph and I have chronic pain from my feet to my head. I have numerous musculoskeletal issues; rheumatoid arthritis, degenerative disc disease of the lumbar, cervical, pain in the shoulders, neck, wrists, right hip, legs, feet, knees, lower left abdomen, and groin.
I have issues with sitting and standing and I have a balance disorder, but I continue to push onward.
All as a result of military service.
I currently take no medications for pain as they all are addictive and have severe side effects.
I have had one epidural injection in the neck and my pain became severely worse after the injection – so I will not take any more injections.
Seems all the medical profession has for back and neck pain is medication, fusion, or suffering.
