I hope you can get it all figured out Rose, and maybe the Dr will script something else that does not cost so much. I agree that if you do too much and inflame those areas...it does seem to take a very long time to get it to calm down. Maybe some light stretching, just to keep things limbered up a bit will help.
Take care, and I sincerely hope you get to feeling better soon! We have missed you here on the forum, but many of us know that you have to take care of yourself first....so do that please, and visit when you can. We dont want you adding more stress to a already troubling situation for yourself.
