Amazing Healing, WOW

Nov 10, 2018 1:53 AM

I have an amazing improvement of some of the pain that had me down but not totally out . I tried everything, Aquatics, Traction, and regular therapy, tens units, Steroids, Kratom, pain meds , nothing helped then I begin to get the diagnostic Medial Branch injections, the 1st try nothing happened, I got discouraged and decided to try one more
Thing PRAYER, mediation and faith, by the time I was scheduled for my 2nd injections in my neck the pain was gone, but I still kept the appt. because I wanted to make sure Pain didnโ€™t return unexpectantly. I continued praying at least 3-5 times a day. At first I was confused as to why I woke up 1 morning before the second injection pain free. I was diagnosed with a badly damaged spine , my last MRI showed severe Foraminal Stenosis in my neck, flattening of spinal cord, Hemangioma of the inside of my T Disc and Spondylitis of my Lower back. But now I can say my neck pain is at a 0-1, middle back no pain Lower back slight 2 . I actually think thereโ€™s some healing going on๐Ÿ˜‡๐Ÿ˜‡

Thanks, Iโ€™m just crossing my fingers and toes ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚, hoping this is not just temporary, because the Drs ,Pharmacy and Insurance was giving me a lot of grief trying to get pain meds. I was told to go back to my PCP for a prescription , a pharmacy called me chastising and challenging my Dr prescribed time, My insurance required prior approval for an increase in dosage of medication I used for pain for years. I actually did not have any meds for several weeks , suffered and prayed until one day I just didnโ€™t need medication as much๐Ÿ™Œ

CB, some opiates etc if taken longer than 14 days can do a number on nerves and brain, not addiction but confusing the mind into thinking you are in pain. There are several German studies out there about this issue and some class of gene. I gave up my morphine after reading several studies and it took about a month to 3 but now I can go weeks without taking anything. Yes i do mindfulness and use e oils and hemp. But very rarely. If pain hits I go inside and hunt it and work it. Sounds new age I know but it does get it to bareable stage.
