I'm new to this forum, used to be on the old one. This site has been so helpful to me the past several years as I've struggled with back "issues". I'm on the ride again, unfortunately, wondering what comes next and feeling like I'm back at square one. I go for epidural tomorrow morning (L5-S1). They've never been successful before, but new pain management doc thinks it will help. Hope so, I'm tired of this.
About me- I'm an artist and teach metalsmithing/jewelry at a community college. I've reached the age, where my body is showing me what for! I love to do things like garden, weave and hike, which I haven't for quite some time because it hurts, as I know most of you know. So "howdy" from Missouri and I'm thankful for all of you regulars who keep this thing going!
