    Living with pain on a daily basis makes it hard to function normally, National Pain & Spine has helped me with my pain issues. Anyone who is unable to function normally due to spinal/nerve pain, I would suggest that they discuss it with thier primary physician, and see if they could get a recommendation to see a doctor at the National Pain & Spine Specialists of Connecticut.
