      NSAIDs - Anti Inflammatory drugs, Ice, Cortisone Injection, TENS/Electrical Stimulation,

    Very uncomfortable and frustrating. Makes my daily chores a daily dreaded task. I have decided to look into a spinal stimulator in the very near future. The only way I can get relief
    is to lay back on an ice pack. This is extremely time consuming.
