      Hi Sid, i'm working at a production company and we are looking for people to participate in a video for a supermarket, promoting healthy eating to help improve diabetes. The video will be of someone with type 2 diabetes cooking a delicious healthy meal with our presenter (who has a background in nutrition) chatting whilst cooking in a home environment. You can contact me at emma@maltfilms.com or on 02070332812

      I totally understand your problem but i would like to tell you that Tramadol is used to cure moderate to severe pain and not for neuro pain , there is another medicine called Gabapentin that is very effective and prescribed for neuro pain problems. If you have any problem or want to ask anything about medicine you can visit our site and consult our professional doctors. Visit now and know more- http://urpharm.com/

        I dont have neropathy I suffer from degenerative arthritis of the lower spine actually, neither did I ask you to spam me with information about your web site, so i would appreciate it if you kept your unwanted and probably untrained medical advice to yourself.
