Kelly, Please do not give up on yourself. I have had many doctors to speak to me as though the pain was in my head simply because they couldn't find a simply answer. I don't know if you received the information I sent about the TENS unit whis is the acronym for Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation. A "TENS unit" is a pocket size, portable, battery-operated device that sends electrical impulses to certain parts of the body to block pain signals. Rebecca Mitchell Have a Bless Day
