If anyone is still reading these words -- and yes, I shall return to this blog! -- I would like some advice. My ladyfriend has been in pain for the past couple of weeks. Nerve pain, radiating from her upper spine (neck area) through the shoulder blade and down her arm. The severity comes and goes -- when she is active, she feels it very little; when she tries to rest, it flares up horribly.
Have any of you undergone a malady of this sort? Do you have any advice? What I'm looking for is advice beyond
the obvious recommendation to see a doctor. My ladyfriend is not keen to do that. Her medical plan forces her go to a rather dismal clinic where she waits and waits and waits all day
: Not a pleasant prospect. And frankly, doctors are often useless when it comes to back-related problems.
I keep thinking that there must be some exercise, some form of manipulation, that can turn things around. I give her massages every night, and they do some good. But I can't find a way to make things CLICK into place, as happens in the movies.
Know any tricks...?
