For a while now I’ve been experiencing a pinch nerve in my upper back and a reflected numbness in my right hand fingers. The intensity of the pain goes up and down but never stops. Sleeping is quite a nightmare, not being able to find a pain free posture in bed. At work the tension is reflected by my stone cold short answers and mean attitude. It’s hard to focus to do anything at all when the only thing always present is the weird feeling of a monkey constantly back-stabbing me with an ice pick. Can anybody live with constant pain? It’s possible…. at least with a little help from hard-core pills.
