Old back injury causing sleep deprivation, cannot to relax to fall asleep due to back pain, about 4hrs a night, what is the best med to take at night?
Circulation: Adequate circulation is the key for any healing to take place. In cold situations your muscles and joints are not getting the circulation that they get when its warm, as the cold restricts the blood vessels. Heat dilates vessels allowing nutrient oxygen rich blood in and allowing the veins to remove the "pain chemicals" which are released around injured or diseased body parts. ...Read more
Can I file for ssi/disability if I can't stand any longer than 30 minutes due to back pain and have copd?

I suggest that you read my blog "oxygen, the spark of life" that you can google it may change your mind about how medicine is supposed to work. ...Read more
Be careful with that: Tylenol with Codeine #4 should not be used to treat your cluster of lbp, rls, and ch, if you have all that as your patient history.Need to get to the bottom of that ; see your pcp, or neurologist, or work with the doctor, who put you on gabapentin.Also, tobacco makes these conditions worse! so, lifestyle changes will reap more benefits than taking pain meds, due to low oxygen states (fr. Tobacco!). ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
