Hi. Thank you VERY much for your reply. Having no insurance, but having access to muscle relaxers... do you think they will help at all ??? I thank you for your prior suggestions, although in medical terms, can you "break-it-down", into specific names? That would be most helpful. Thank you, in advance.
