    Back pain

    So, I’ve already been going to pain management for low back pain and neck pain(all in the spine)... but as of recently(last week), i slept on my back funny and now it hurts in my lower back on the right side and it’s hard for me to walk. It’s just to the right of my lower back right around the hip area if that makes sense. It hurts worse than the back pain i was already having. What do you guys think i did? Did i punch a nerve.. is it because I’ve gained a few pounds? Anyone else going through this....

    Life Devastation

    My life has been nearly completely destroyed due to the government bullying legitimate pain patients. I was cut to less than half of my meds in one month & completely off the next. I have RSD of the right arm and I have been taking medication for about 10 to 12 years. I’ve remained on the same dosage amount for that time because I am young and I knew that there would be a time when I may need a higher dosage. I have never had any dirty urine test or any issues with my doctor but when all of this....

    My partner has been treated for sarcoidosis for the past 4 years. They started his treatment with prednisone and methotrexate. He suffered severe muscle cramps all over his body.

He takes magnesium and potassium supplements which don’t change a thing. He started on azathioprine and Prednisone and suffered the same side effects. What we did find in his case is that....

    Sciatica

    I've been dealing with sciatica on a daily basis for many years. I've had numerous injections, been on muscle relaxers, hours of physical therapy, tried custom shoe inserts, chiropractors, acupuncture and several other therapies. Is getting a nerve cut, or root nerve ablation a possibility? Possibility to lower or stop the constant pain? I'm talking over 40 years. Getting around is more difficult all the time. Falling happens frequently so I rarely leave my home and I'm only 62. I'm....
