Rsd in 1992. told I was crazy. believed them! could not tolerate anti-inflamatories,or any pain meds. over 18months 13 spinal blocks. first few numb from waist down. last no effect .Smoked pot. no pain relief but was able to get my mind on other things. Life ruined! few people could accept my constant complaints. lost wife,home and friends. Over the years pain lessened. Security job in 1998. been doing that ever since. Fear was my enemy.Being affraid of recurrence was all consuming. First and last thing on my mind. Now I am almost 65 and retirement and the fear of uselessness will go. I think no drugs helped me. God have mercy on those current and future sufferers.
