    Thanks for the info-

    I have had an EMG which showed nonfunction and very little in some areas. I will check out your profile for more information. I just found some of these chats and boards a couple days ago and I am so greatful to have others truly understand these invisible symptoms. It's funny how strangers sometimes understand more than our loved ones.

    Have a great holiday!

    I feel I too am way undermedicated for pain and I might add my relative gave me Klonopin 1mg. that he can't use.I take it when the pain and lack of sleep make me crazy for relief.
