Hi, everyone. I'm new to this, so bear with me, please. Just wanted you all to know I've read all these posts, and can agree with everyone: the pain can be truly agonizing and unrelenting, as can be verified by my wife, who is the sufferer in this family. As she has been for many years without any genuine relief. Maybe we can learn from you, hopefully, some things we haven't tried yet which work for you. But we hope and pray that the new treatment she started Tuesday will bring her some lasting relief, and that all of you get the relief you're praying for. Until next time. Hopemate: hoping, praying, and helping my wife.
