Patient :I am a 54 yr old female who has has chronic back and neck pain for the last two or years. Doc has performed labs, x rays and MRI says I have spinal arthritis and some other stuff due to age but I say it's worse. I have a really painful lump on lower left back and I wake at night with sever pain in hip and sometimes night sweats. I recently heard of back mice and think that might be my problem because muscle relaxers and ibuprofin don't help and neither does physical therapy or massage which is all my 1st yr intern doc keeps tryin to do. What do you recommend?
