    I have long-term, major back issues and I've had multiple surgeries/fusions for my lower back. For the past several years I've had significant constant pain in my spine just below the shoulder blades. The pain managment doctor prescribed these patches to help alleviate the pain. Unfortunately, they have no effect on my pain so I still hurt like heck. The only think that seems to work for m ... Show Full Comment
