I have been in pain since August of 2009 with no help. The Dr's say that because I travel with my husband's job now, that it would be impossible for them to help me! What can I do? I can not sleep because when I lay down the pain wakes me up and I can't sit because the pain. My left foot drops and I stumble alot. PLEASE some one help me!!! Thanks emmie 9
