I have just now "joined" Mayo Clinic Connect feed. I am excited about attending a Road Scholar trip to Mayo Clinic in Rochester this coming May for a "behind the scenes" look. I have been in Rochester on many occasions when my husband was ill (1984-1994).
I am currently diagnosed with fibromyalgia, depression, osteo-arthritis, rheumtoi arthritis, and suffer pain from sites of knee and hip replacements and neuropathy from spinal fusion surgery (C5-7) with current problems at C-8/T1.
I cannot tolerate any benzodiazipines, acetominophen provides only modest relief at time. I rely on music and social interaction for relief of pain.
