Thank you, I am trying to avoid medication except for the dophilius that I take as I think I take enough chemical drugs, but will keep it in mind for the future should the need arise. It comes and goes and sometimes is hardly there at all, at other times the pain is constant. Also not sure whether it is available here in South Africa.
