Dear Brokenwing, I have been where you are now! It wasn't that long ago, that I was giving up, I gave up on ever having a real life again. Then I heard about the specialists that treat ARD. In Nov. I went to Germany & had surgery with Dr. Korell. Now I feel like I have a real life. I feel like a new person. I hardly take any meds now. Before my surgery, I was on Vicodin 10mg (10 a day) another pain med & duragesic pain patch. I could hardly do anything! Recently I went back to work. I havent worked in over 3 years! I hope that you won't give up. There are drs out there that can & will help. keep your chin up!! Robin
