That pain can be caused by tight muscles in your lower back pressing onto the nerves going to your legs to cause that pain. That chronic pain they have labeled you with isn't chronic anymore, it can be gotten rid of which should improve you life a lot. Your high blood pressure would be caused by the pain you are in and your back muscles are pinched to cause the pains there and you can free them up to get rid of the pain by doing this, which should help your leg as well:Back: (do from a sitting position)Place your left hand on your left leg next to your body. Place your right hand over your left shoulder, fingers over the back and the palm in the front and firmly pull down on them and hold. After 30 seconds slowly lower your body forward and to the outside of your left leg, keeping your left arm fairly straight as you do. When you reach your lap remain there for another 10 seconds, release the pressure but rest there for another 30 seconds. Then reverse your hand positions and do your right side. Your neck pain is from tight neck muscles, whiplash, and to get rid of those pains you have to free up your neck muscles and here's how to free them up to get rid of the pain:NeckPut your hands alongside your head so your thumbs are on the front of the muscle under your ear and your fingers are on the back of the muscle behind your neck. Squeeze your thumb and fingers together and hold. Relax your body. When your fingers and thumb touch, about two minutes, slowly lower your head as far as you can, release the pressure but hold your neck lowered for another 30 seconds. For both- for best results relax your body first by taking a deep breath and exhaling then remain this relaxed.
Here are a couple of testimonials from people who used mangosteen to treat chronic pain and fibromyalgia among other ailments. Send me as message if you would like to have some more information about how mangosteen may be able to help you. Check it out as they have a money back "empty bottle" guarantee. If it works, is it worth it?3/30/2009 -- AL & Paula from FL We were introduced to the Mangosteen Juice by my physician. We both had terrible acid reflux and we taking medications which I did not like and really were not working. I also had Fibromyalgia and my husband had lower back pain. Within 3 weeks or so the acid reflux was gone for both of us and no more meds! Within 2 1/2 months my Fibromyalgia symptoms were gone and I was pain free and my husband's residual lower back pain after having spinal decompression therapy for 2 ruptured disks was now a thing of the past! From now on, Mangosteen juice is what we reach for when we have a health issue. Drugs are a last resort for us! We are so grateful and blessed that we have a 'natural' alternative with no side effects to be healthy! 9/1/2009 -- Rosanne from Taranaki Chronic fatigue and Fibromyalgia meant that I gave up full time work in a position that I loved. Four years later I am now working half time after much rest and then I discovered mangosteen juice juice and in 4 weeks I feel more improvement in my general health than in the past four years. The combination of the juice and the advice of Lynn from flourishwithfood.com has my life buzzing again. Mangosteen juice is pure gold!
Did you injure your knee in the car or was it a sports accident, or is it something new?Has your doctor done x-rays, ultra sounds etc of your knee, or you have seen a orthopedic surgeon, they need to check if its a joint or ligament problem, and maybe do a arthroscope to look into your knee joint, and repair any damage if needed.Fibromyalgia does not normally cause joint instability, but can occur in some people, fibro certainly causes burning pain, especially neck, shoulders and back. Are you on any medication for the Fibromyalgia? In recent years there has been a number of medications, that been approved as a treatment of fibro and can be very helpful in reducing pain. Any new symptoms or symptoms that are persistent you should see your doctor, for a full check up, especially as your knee is buckling on you, this is not normally a fibro thing.I have CFS & Fibromyalgia too
