My journey to this point has been a long 23 yr long road. It started with a diskectomy from an injury. That helped me for about 5 yrs. then I realized I was taking more and more advil and tylenol, like a bottle a week. So I sought out other treatments...shots, massage therapy, chiropractor, water aerobics, etc and then Ultram which worked for many years. But in 2000 I stated to have pain all over and in 2005 I found out I had Lyme Disease and Fibromyalgia I started long yerm bery strong anti-biotics for almost 2 yrs. i injected B vitamins and also taking many other vitamins. When they tested me after 18 months and I still had Lyme I stopped all the anti-biotucs. I didn't know about the Barometric Oxygen Chamber treatment back then. So my back pain and pain all over my body got worse every year. In 2005 I finally decided to start taking actual pain meds instead of surgery. There were 3 different doctors that administered combinations of drugs. The first 2 were horrible and gave me meds that shouldn't have been given together.
