I've tired a lot of things. The one thing that I tried that helped me was a hypnosis. It helps to a point just like everything else. I have no choice at some point I will have to go on what's called a fontanel patch to releave my pain, mine is going to put me in a wheel chair by the time 50. I'm only 36 now and I have days that I can't even get out of bed! I have stayed off of all the meds and am still trying to. If you can stay off them it's better for you. Your body can't handle to much it will let you know when you must take something.
