I tried everything. Opiods helped,until, l found the alpha stim stimulator. I have 3 chair lifts in my house. I'm going to remove 1 now. The va helped me and put me through everything for over 10 years. The va gave me the stimulator that helps. I was taking 6 hydrocodone 7.5 a day. I'm down to 3 now. And will continue till I'm off opiods www.alphastim.com
