I have tried most every procedure on your list. I have been on methadone for five years which I pulled myself off of due to long term effect of medications. I used two ounces of cannabis that helped through the withdrawals and stress. Went couple years after two back surgeries and was in car accident that I had to have a neck surgery from it. (replaced a vertebra). Had to go back on medications. Been on 4, 10 mgs a day, Norco for over five years now. As well, 2, 350mg, Soma (Generic) daily. I live in chronic pain from a sciatica nerve that was damaged over years of hard work. Two back surgeries has not helped nor most of all procedures tried. Thank you.
