I am have a pinched nerve in my lower back and my neck. I have been in excruciating pain for 5 years and nothing seems to work. The pain medication isn't working all that well. I have had chiropractic care before I was told that I have to leave the treatment because the sessions had to stop. Now I am back to pain and numbness is back to square one. I pray for pain relief because my doctor says I could become addicted to the pain medication. I don't want the epidural because I don't want no one in my back with a needle nor do I want surgery.
