I keep rereading this pdf and am going to start making some small changes that hopefully will improve my chronic pain, not just this tendon issue. I want to hug you! (((crimson)))

The Intractable Pain Patient's Handbook for Survival is a great ebook. Very informative.

I deal with chronic pain and despite having adequate pain meds, I still had pain.... thankfully I have found some great supplements that make a big difference. Magnesium (I use malate and glycinate), D-Ribose and Curamin are excellent. I use several other supplements and meds and my pain levels are generally low with my current regimen.
Supplements do take time to work. Dr Teitelbaum says to give them up to 3 months since it takes time to restore deficiencies and heal the body.
Hope you find something that helps you.
