I am a 30 year old female. I have DDD in my lumbar and cervical spine (so far)...I haven't had a MRI on my thoracic spine, yet. I have osteoarthritis, degeneration, and bulging discs (3 of them) in my cervical spine. I have degeneration, osteoarthritis, retrolisthesis, hemangiomas (covering L4), and herniated discs in my lumbar spine. I don't have my MRI reports in front of me at the moment...so I am going by memory. I have been suffering from chronic pain for over 8 years now. I am not on any pain management but am going back to my doctor tomorrow for pain relief. Whenever the pain gets severe, I get migraine headaches and my legs become painful and numb. I also have incurable Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (of both hands), which has caused muscle atrophy and nerve damage in both hands. I had surgery on both hands last year, but it only made it worse on my left hand (which is the worst one). Did I forget to mention that I have Supra-Ventricular Tachycardia (SVT)? I am glad to have found this board and support group! Of course, I am in severe pain, early this morning and am awaiting the doctor's office to open. I have tried injections on my spine and intense physical therapy (which worsened my condition, due to an inexperienced therapist). I am anxious to get to know everyone and find out how you each cope with the chronic pain. Thank you!
