      I'd try anything once to see if it helps....Who cares if it only helps for awhile. I take ibuprofen and it only lasts for a little while.....Even Chemo doesn't last forever....

      I have tried all sort of ridiculous experiments to see if they would help, as soon as I felt sure the experiment could not hurt me.

      Hope you feel better soon.

    Thanks4Mayo, I read your reply to the posted question re: pain, fatigue by Greg_P, where you said you suffer from cervical fibrosis. I also have limited range of motion in neck and severe pain but mine isn't from radiation to neck, just severe degenerative changes however, I'm curious as to whether your physicians have suggested any surgical intervention or if you've found any relief.

      KB2013 - I've tried (almost) everything - acupuncture, PT, osteopathic manipulation and pharma cocktails. My surgeon said that surgery had low odds of helping, and that a lot more could go wrong than right from surgery. So I am working hard with therapy to keep from deteriorating as time goes on.

      Golly gee, I was hoping for some good news--lol. I will keep my ears and eyes open for any new treatment modalities as I'm sure you do, in the meantime, keep hanging in there.
