    Rest, Wait and See, Surgery with dural opening
    Not Improved

I do not like the choice of �cured� given. There is no cure, only treatments.
I have given up on trying to find anything that takes away the pain I have. I don�t want to be stuck on medications the rest of my life and have learned to live my life in constant pain.
