    Oh Shirley I know exactly how you feel right now. It makes doing things that are hard to begin with almost impossible.

    Try some tiger balm or BioFreeze these things work wonders! The tiger balm you can get at Walgreens. I'm not sure where to get the BioFreeze my chiropractor gives me samples of it to get me through my in between session days!

    Hope you feel better!
