... Chrissy, yes today I woke up despite taking my oxycontin at 4 in the morning with severe pain at 8:00. I ended up taking a breakthru before I could get out of bed. Not the best way to start the day. I am sorry you are going thru it too. I am having my CT mylegram read and I might have to have spinal surgery #5. So prayers are definitely needed here. I pray that today... (15 replies)

... Hi Jackie glad at least you got offered a chocolate bar and hope you took them up on it, you know for us women chocolate is a prescribed medication.

... On my own I first tried accupuncture because that worked for me about a year before (after doing 6 months of PT) and he did trigger point injections, which did not work.
