My issues are not caused from an injury... it's degenerative. I also have Rheumatoid arthritis... I'm in constant pain 24/7 the only thing that really gives me any kind of relief is massage therapy. I try to go at least once a week but sometimes can't because of the cost. I don't wish this on anyone... pain meds will take the edge off some but that's about it.
