Dear Pharmacist: I have neck pain, sciatica and headaches. I’ve tried prednisone, Celebrex, Ibuprofen, Vicodin, physical therapy, chiropractors, massage, reiki, acupuncture, prayer work, laser and 2 surgeries on my neck. Nothing helps. Please, any ideas? — D.C., San Diego
Answer: Assuming your diet is good, I’d try yoga next. I hear you thinking, “I can’t even sit without pain, why should I twist myself into a knot?” Research proves yoga can help certain types of neck and back pain, headaches, migraines, anxiety, high blood pressure and osteoporosis. Since you’ve tried addictive narcotics, anti-inflammatories, steroids, surgery and whatever else, spending thousands of dollars and suffering endlessly, I think yoga’s worth a shot. It has no side effects other than making you feel refreshed, sort of like a human breath mint!
