For various reasons, I have not visited this website for quite awhile. I wanted to share my experiences in seeking relief for my chronic neck pain. I have been "fighting" this chronic neck pain for about seven years. Long story short, due to the passing of my husband in September 2013, I relocated back to the state in which I was born and raised, Michigan.
My new PCP and Pain Management doctors could not believe the amount of opiate pain medications I was taking. Both indicated that it was almost twice as much as it should be. I am now on a different path to relieve my pain. I am being weaned off the opiated to be replace with non-opiate medications. One of these is an NSAID that does not cause stomach upset. The other is Aqua Therapy and some "Land" Therapy, as we call it. The Aqua or Water Therapy is wonderful! Being over medicated for so many years is intolerable. How many of you might be over medicated? Seems it is more common than I thought.
Anyway, sorry this is so long, but I wanted to afford all of you with the possibility of trying the water therapy. Thanks for listening, everyone. God Bless!
