kyhwana2:NonprayingMantis: Ipinched a nerve last year and I know how you feel. absolute agony.
New age stuff (homeopathy, acupuncture etc) only works based on the placebo effect, and since I trust in science rather than bull that means it wont work for me.
I just took as many drugs (legal) as I could get my hands on. starting with the easy stuff, Neurofen, paracetemol etc, moving onto codeine and morphine.
I tried chriopracter/ostepath, but they didnt do much for me.
Did you try pot at all? There's a reason places in the states have medical marijuana!
(If you google around, i'm pretty sure there have been studies about what it can do for pain management, would be more studies if it wasn't demonised. As for the harm it does, well, alcohol causes more harm than pot. Alcohol should illegal and pot legal, not vice versa)
I was in agony from back pain one night. I tried some marijuana. Worst thing I ever did,. It had a magnifying effect. I could see every ruptured cell in 3D retina quality images and this is back in the 90's, Went to the Docs,the next day, hé gave me some pills, Ahhhh bliss....
