  1. I have had 3 cervical dissectemy cervical fushion. This is better. I had an injury to the sacroiliac joint & faucet joint on right side over 20 years ago. This area radiates pain. This effects my muscles in my thighs. Trying to walk makes it worse. I wear Flector patches, use ice to numb area and am bedridden way to often. At times, nothing stops the pain. My neurologist gives me corticosteroid shot in the pain spot. Helps for a short time. I have been off pain medications a year. The doctors in my small town no longer prescribe opiates. Also Fibromyalgia muscle pain is constant. My life revolves around surviving each day. No kind of good life at all.
