It has been a very long time since I've posted. Actually, it was on our old boards since I've posted last! As I am not really a new member to SH but a newer member to these latest boards.
I am in no way new to chronic pain as I have been living with chronic pain for over 10 years. A few of you may recall me from those past boards. I had felt at the time that I needed a break from posting.
My situation and pain has not changed since my last post of about 8 months. It is good to see many familiar names. Just checking to see if there had been any new treatments or modalities in pain relief, but obviously not. I guess chronic pain is definitely a major issue in many people's lives and things don't change very much.
I am coping fairly with my main complaints always being tremendous sciatic pain. Pain management seems to be just that, managing. I think I have learned to live & cope with so much pain. Pain meds have helped to a great extent but as most of you know, the more you take, the more you need, so I look towards other ways of coping & relieving my pain.
I am glad to reconnect with you & look forward to chatting with old friends & new ones once again!
