6 Answers | Asked by Ell Kuz on Jan 31, 2014

Answered by Karin Singleton on Jan 31, 2014

Hi Ell, you have already done a lot to try to get relief. I myself tend to do a lot of things myself first before looking outside for help. It appears, though, that at this point you should seek the advice of a doctor or chiropractor. You say yourself that you know something is irritated, and ...
