I was involved in a car wreck in 1989. I had a herniated disc in my neck which was fused. I also have had chronic as time went by. Now my life is controlled my pain level. Stress activates the stress. I'm never without pain. I have pain from neck to buttocks. Gave gone through burning nerves and also numerous injections with no relief. I'm told there is nothing else they can do for me.
