Hi Cardinal!

I'm so sorry all the pain you are having. I know it's so hard to know what to do and what to take and it's especially hard when you don't have insurance until August. I can't be of any help as to what to suggest as I am still trying to figure it all out myself. But I wanted you to know I understand and care and will pray for you.

I also had a disectomy at L5/S1 July 2003 which didn't help. It is also now completely collapsed. I have Osteoarthritis throughout my spine and in the cervical but not near the problems you are having with your cervical. I also have facet joint arthropathy and hip bursitis, along with Fibromyalgia. The moist heating pad helps me too and gentle stretching. I don't tolerate meds well either and still trying to find something I can take. This is my 2nd night trying Mobic. I heard that Cherry juice is good but I haven't tried it yet, also eliminating caffeine and sugars.

I will bump this up for you and hopefully someone will be able to give you more answers.

Take care and hope you feel better!
