Had some muscle strain on and off throughtout my adult life like many of us do. Butttt , was involved in a auto accident 3 going on 4 years now. It messed me up soooo bad. I was out of town too, nightmare. Anyway had emergency treatment their, but the e.r. docs. said it was strained and maybe some herniation going on from the accident. Got home 3 days later and been down hill since. Had surgery to repair my BROKEN BACK, right away. did alittle better for about a month. Now I am worse off more than ever. I am virtually crippled. I can't walk more that 20 yards, that's one a good day. Constance pain. Can't take naiads, became allergic to them. Can't take codeine or any stronger meds be cause I have Parkinson's Disease which game me gastropariesis--stomach is paralyzed muscles so I have constant constipation. intestinal blockage. not fun. So I am at anyone mercy. If someone out there in this big world can help me just a little I would be ever thankful
