Hi winged phantom,

I'm so very sorry you are suffering so. I truly wish I had some answers for you but I'm afraid I am just in the process of educating myself on all this stuff. Have you tried posting this on the "back problems" board? I have found them all to be truly helpful. They seem to have a great deal of info and are always helpful and friendly.

Again, I so wish I could help, but my prayers are with you and if nothing else at least my response will bump this post back up there.
