Hi everyone. Want to mention how incredibly supportive you all seem. Everyone could use a little 'community' these days it seems, and the opportunity to find an honest and caring one is assuredly rare.
I have posted a question in the spinal stenosis section, and realize my back problems are minimal compared to many here, but I am still in need of some insight.
I am 27, female, with 3 little kidlets, and from Canada. It will be a pleasure to meet you :)


  • Be assured that your pain is every bit as important and real as anyone else here. You are correct in that you have found a great place for support and information. I will look forward to seeing you around the board.

  • Thanks to everyone who posted so far, what a nice welcome. I m looking forward to reading more of the helpful articles and sharing ideas back and forth. I am on a waiting list for a family doctor (I have recently moved) and this will be helpful to get some tips, reassurances, and advice from personal experiences while I wait. As the mother of 3 small kids my time allowances are minimal, but I hope to be a positive contributor to the site.
    On a side note, thanks for the comments regarding my comparison between my pain and others, this made me feel a lot more comfortable about posting here. :)

  • Hi UV & welcome to the boards :)

    I have been here ( different user name before ) for about 2 months now and can honestly say my life has changed for the better because of this forum.

    The members here are SUPER supportive and have a wealth of information and resources.

    Pain is pain - its hurts therefore it effects your life. ALL are welcome here on the same level of humanity not pain levels ;)

    L1 - S2 "gone" useless in 1 way or another. DDD. RA. Bone Spurs. Tons of nerve damage/issues. Stenosis. Both knees replaced. 50 yrs old. I had a great fall (hence my user name) at age 41 and it has been a domino effect every since.
  • thanks for the welcome ms. humpty dumpty, pleasure to meet you, :)
