I forgot to add that if you want to go the medication route, there is a muscle relaxer called SOMA that works good for me.

As apples of gold in silver carvings is a word spoken at the right time for it. Prov. 25:11
The majority of my pain is also in my neck, shoulders, cervical and thoracic regions of my spine.
I am on Ultram Er 300 mg per day, darvocet 2 every 5 or 6 hours as well as Cymbalta and occasionally 2 mobic. I still have pain but not nearly as bad as before the meds. I also use a heat in the microwave pad from a body shop party. I use Ice and Have one of those homedics crapsu massagers which has helped. Nothing is going to clear the pain 100% I've discovered other than being totally under the influence of high doses of morphine or something. Who wants to live like that?
