Have you ever been checked for Chiari malformation. Might be a good idea . a MRI
volfan, I can sympathize with you about the neck pain 24/7. I have had it for 16 years and nothing stops it. Right now I am going to a Chiro but recently I went to am Orthropedic who did nothing but try to scare me out of narcotics. He sent me for PT for 8 weeks which helped while they were working on me, but costs me a fortune. He also had me get a TENS which costs me $100 out of my pocket. Man, I live on SS and all these costs and copays and then the meds are breaking me up. I am in CC debt because of trying to ease my pain.
I'm sorry you are in extreme pain. What do you do for a little relief? The only time I'm painfree is when I'm asleep and I take meds for that too.
I'm a Big Orange fan, too.
