Do discs slip?
A disc in the spine, neck or back, is a cushion between the vertebrae, that is like a thick slice of an onion, made out of cartilage, with a jelly-bean-like center. This cartilage is firmly attached to the vertebrae above and below it, so it cannot ‘slip’. The jelly bean in the center is as hard as a marble when fully supported by the strong rings of cartilage that surround it. But if small or large tears occur in these supportive rings of cartilage, the jelly bean center gets squeezed into the void, causing the outer rings to bulge.
My restless legs has flared up only two times since I've been on the supplements. I almost forget about it now. I don't remember the last time I had it. I no longer have any light headedness for feeling dizzy. My energy and strength is back, which has allowed more hiking, beach walks, yoga and the gym. I've even lost that extra 5 pounds! The "fluttering" I had in my heart is gone since I've taken the supplements, but I also know what's stopped it is that I have almost completely stopped drinking coffee which I know triggers it. Coming in to you has been priceless!
