Thank you for the info. I live in Minnesota and I will do some research. At the time my neurologist told me it would be the same size as the one that goes on the spinal cord and that scared me. I would like to try that oil. I'm scheduled to go to see my Dr in two weeks. I will ask him.

I am going to be with my grandson today. I always make up excuses to not see him because I'm embarrassed by not being able to do much with him. I've been in a Fibro flare for a long time. Sometimes I think winter has a bad effect on me. Does anyone else suffer worse in the winter?

Do you drink a specific brand? I see Trader Joes sells a ginger and tumeric tea.

Im so sorry you have to endure so much. I have taken so many nerve type meds and nsaids my stomach can't do them anymore. Oxycotin is the only med that has helped my pain. I am going to try and get back to relaxation techniques and try turmeric. I don't have RA but my husband does and he takes Enbril which helps him a lot. I do have OA and have one knee replaced and the other is bone on bone. It is so hard to deal with the everyday pain and Im sad to read everyone's story but it is healing to finally be able to talk about it. Thank you.

It was suggested to me by my neurologist I was seeing at the time to get a neuro simulator as a last ditch effort to stop my head and neck pain. I have spinal stenosis in my upper cervical. I had tried neck traction, muscle simulator similar to a tens unit, different cervical and nerve blocks, nerve ablation on both sides of my c4 and several different medications and muscle relaxers to stop the pain. None of those things worked and I seriously considered the implant but I decided against it and made an appointment at Mayo. They Started me on botox around my head, neck, and shoulders and I started using a Cefly device. I know that is different from you but is it possible to get botox injections in your upper back? It has worked well for me. I have other pain and issues and one of the meds I use is oxycotin, which is one of the only meds that helps my pain. I don't think med marijuana is legal in my state but after reading some of these posts I begining to wish it was. I do have a friend who after several back surgeries and years of pain has decided to try it. It's such a tough l
