Hi, I'm new here and have been reading the forums for some time and decided to join. Alittle background, I started out with several apparently minor joint and back injuries that just nagged and nagged and kept stumbling, tripping, chronic wide-spread pain ,fatigue, blah blah blah. Fast forward many years, the diagnosis list has just grown and grown, neuropathy's,neuralgia's,fibro,DDD,spinal arthritis,IBS,malabsorbtion problems,pre-diabetic,funky autoimmune reactions,assorted neuro-crap head to toe. Now I'm 48 going on 88,have ended up retired due to disablity. My neuro said my DDD would not be helped by surgery due to arthritis, atypical hemangeoma,and DDD being pervasive to entire lumbar spine, (whatever!?) not that I want surgery. I just feel like I'm falling apart inside and out my CNS seems to just be going kaput,along with joints,tendons and guts. I just wish the docs could come up with a way to make me not hurt so bad all the time and be able to move alittle better. Pain is exhausting.
I'm sorry to go so long, looking forward to meeting all of you, and really I'm not a whiner all the time. I used to be a full out A-type personality worker and fitness freak.Now I'm an A-type personality news junkie house ty-rant,LOL.
