I haven't been able to afford a specialist. I have Tri-care, so I have to pay a lot out of pocket. I take Gralise, advil, stretch everyday, use marijuana for pain relief. Pain pills are addictive. Just bought a new mattress. Was diagnosed five years ago, and lost hope when treatment in my area( had just moved to SC) only consisted of pain management clinics that only wanted to prescribe opia
