    I am a 39 year old female with serious nerve pain radiating from my spine - shoulder blade - rt arm - rt chest and often up my neck.

    I've spent 1000's and 1000's on different treatments, take a lot of vit's, am active and exercise and still suffer -I've tried many meds - and Lorazapam hands down is the most effective - I take just .5 before bed - pain is gone is about 1 hr and I sleep through the night - my Dr although has had me use every med under the sun, including narcotics -which are barely effective but make me feel terrible - is hesitant to prescribe lorazapam - crazy really!!! I dont use it during the day - I use Baclofen (Muscle relaxor) which is 'helpful' but I am concerned about using Lorazapam all day.
