there are medications to help what's going on here....
I'm all for more meds.:D

Snail venom in a pill could offer powerful relief for people who suffer from severe and chronic pain.

It may seem an unlikely source of pharmaceutical inspiration, but the chemicals that some snails produce have potent effects on the human nervous system. This makes them promising sources of drugs that could dull the pain of cancer, diabetes, multiple sclerosis, HIV/AIDS, car accidents and other conditions.

In the latest advance, researchers have designed a venom-inspired medication that can be taken orally -- a leap forward from previous forms that needed to be injected directly into the spinal cord.

In rodent studies, the drug appears to work better than existing drugs, including morphine, at lower doses and without risks of addiction.
