    Yes. In addition, beforehand, my neurosurgeon did a fairly standard neurological clinical exam, examined what by then was a stale cervical MRI and concluded that it he saw no real basis for...

    First, really sorry that you're going through experiences reminiscent of the Book of Job. You didn't deserve them or bring them on, and certainly not all at one time.

    10 minutes to wash my hair, wash myself, brush and floss my teeth, and to shave. If I have sore muscles, I might bump up the temperature and let the water run longer.
