I just registered with this site and figured I would introduce myself :H

I have multiple medical problems which include:
3 Herniated disks - lumbar spine
2 Bulging disks - lumbar spine
Permanent nerve damage lumbar spine and sciatic nerve
Cervical disk fusion C5-6
Permanent nerve damage cervical spine
and to compound it all I also have Chronic Epstein-Barr virus with elevated titers in the 2000s, Fibromyalgia, Chronic fatigue and depression and anxiety (directly related to all of the above).
I currently see a neurologist, pain management specialist who is awesome! and my primary.
I am so happy to have this board. Lots of encouraging and positive messages here from what I have read and am grateful to have this board here. It helps to have somewhere to go and people dont look at you like you are a hypochondriac when you tell them what is wrong or how you feel.
Thanks for being here :H
