    Thoracic Outlet Syndrome-pinched nerve

    I experienced a "pinched nerve recently. I had foot surgery and was incapacited with a foot cast. To get around I was given crutches and had used the crutches for 2 months before I graduated to the walking boot. Due to the cast, the uncomfortable posture, and sleeping in bed with a huge cast, my spine and whole body was mis-aligned. I first went to a chiropractor who manipulated and adjusted me into proper alignment. But I was having numbness in my left arm all the way down to the ring finger....

    Pain Medication Question

    I've been suffering from chronic prostatitis for couple of years now. I've seen many doctors in the States but haven't had much success regarding the daily pain. When I was traveling abroad recently, I decided to see a urologist there to see if anything different could be done for me.
