I have had three cervical surgeries from a car accident, facet and disk destruction, so I have been in pain management for 8 years and still have burning pains down arms and upper back, likely in lifetime pain management, have no cardiac problems but family members have stents and my lipid panels do not look good so to avoid heart problems treat lipids and keep BP low, also beta blocker helps sleep, pain wakes me up so have to slow everything down so I do not move much in sleep or pain wakes me up. Needed PPI's for GERD before cervical trauma. If I move too much then pain on damaged joints/nerves. If I do not move then cramps/spasm so need move stretch but nerve entrapment radiates pain and done with surgery since now it just shits focal points of pain not cure. Thanks so much. Long ago unknown virus from mosquito bites while fly fishing made my thyroid go way hyper for 2 months, lost 30 #, I am was always athlete with good diet strength etc., post 2 months of prednisone my thyroid panels all normal since, cool but then fatigue from pain and low testosterone post thyroid bump makes Androgel very helpful.
From this study (2 years ago):
