I cannot stand how spaced out I get on medications. I work as an elem. school substitute teacher. I cant take drugs and do that job. I think I am sensitive to how I react to drugs. I try Celebrex for the arthritis part of my neck issue, but its a minimal help. The only thing that touches my pain makes me so spaced out I cannot function in my daily life, so I am living with it. But all this is pushing me to having surgery to hopefully lessen the pain. (and numbness in the hands).
