The Battle that is Fibromyalgia

The Battle that is Fibromyalgia 4

TENS Unit, how you mock me

TENS Unit, how you mock me 13

Pain sucks. There’s no way around it. Whether you have a high pain tolerance or a paper cut can make you cry, no one enjoys it. After epidurals and SI joint injections didn’t work and I’m at the “Max” for steroid injections currently, the doctor said, “Let’s get you hooked up with a TENS unit.” […]
