  • I have been dealing with the same thing for 14 months now I have been to 12 different doctors and specialists they were all refering me to a pain clinic and I dont want to have to take pain medicine for the rest of my life but it is the only thing that brings me any relief from all of the pain. so I was going to have the nerves cut so I would not feel the pain in my back. But the neuro surgeon said I did not need surgery and referred me to a pain clinic. So I went to a spine/back pain clinic and the surgeon said there was a procedure where they inbed needles into the muscles and use some kind of radio wave to kill the nerves from the muscle out to the skin and it is about the radious of a baseball. I am having this done this friday. I hope with all of my heart it works. I will post my results. and are the your muscles in a constant spasm and does one side hurt worse than the other?
