He also said to stay away from opiates, to use acupuncture, dry needling. He recommends baby steps and to start working six hours shifts first. My hubby has a nephew with aneurysm at age 37. Now he's slowly back to work I m a partner in a primary care group for many years and work many hours. Hubby is a psychiatrist and work for the state hospital.
