head neck and back pain

Posted by @kaylyn, Dec 7, 2012

I am a 35 year old wife and mother of 2 young girls. I have struggled with recurrent “flare ups” of severe neck pain-lower back pain and severe migraine. I had surgery two times on an arachnoid cyst that was compressing my spinal cord a little but I have all the symptoms/ flare-up yet again. This has been over a span of 4 years. I have been to so many doctors and they now do not know why I am in severe reoccurrent pain. I am considering coming to the Mayo Clinic but I am in Texas.

What are you doing to treat the pain? I would never recommend narcotics to anyone except for in extremely rare circumstances, you may want to try a hard-to-find topical (and non-narcotic) pain reliever called Biofreeze ( ).

Seeking Mayo Clinic advice is always a good idea, but I’ve heard from a number of folks that Biofreeze helped relieve their pain better than even narcotic pain killers like oxycodone.
