hi

my name is Penny. I have been in pain management for 2 1/2 yrs. However, I have been in pain since 2005. Each time I have had tests done in the last 3 yrs, I have been worse and worse. I went through the ordeal of having a NeuroStimulator implanted...wires for upper and lower back. It has been horrible! It has been useless. I have had 2 neck designs. .so 2 metal plates, 8 screws. I have degenerative disc disease...c2-c6 fused..my necks hurts 90% of the time. I have Cervical and Lumbar Stenosis. ..Lumbar Degree Disease. OsteoArthritis (not tested) I have every symptom of Fibromyalgia. .I take Opana ER & IR..cymbalta..HBP med.. muscle relaxers. anemia..restless leg..carpal tunnel. I work...supposed to be full time. I am not young...but dr says 51 is too young to have all of this!

welcome Penny.

your doctor said to young for fibro? we have 20 year olds here with it.

much of the stuff you have can be seen in much younger folks than you.

please do come back for support. we understand pain and uneducated doctors.

start by reading my post "starting a daily log book and why it helps"

this will help you with the doctors.

Welcome , I hope we can give u support if nothing else.
Here at least we understand.if u can't get any joy from your Dr ask to be referred to a rumy ,but with back and neck problems they will make everything hurt.
But do join in the forum chat
