I have RA, OA, spinal and cervical stenosis, suffered with radiculopathy (severe), and I was in agony. I went through epidurals, had the nerves burnt, cortisone injections, etc. I finally had cervical and spinal fusions that helped me very much. Later I opted for an intrathecal pain pump and it has relieved my pain. There are no more pills to take and no side effects.
