  • I would think it's painful, but not painful 24/7, just at random times of the day

  • My nephew had it. He suffered with pain and other illness. We lost him a couple of months ago at the age of 16.

  • My cousin had it, he said it was very painful, but here in California he was able to smoke weed instead of taking presciption pills, and that helped him a lot. The doc originally gave him til 5years, but he lived until 22years, but he died for another reason, a gun shot wound
