Over the last week, Spine Health has endured a fair amount of turmoil. The main theme seems to be revolving around pain medications. The bottom line is, all members should speak from their own personal experience. Passing public judgements or being critical of another member will not be tolerated. Advice as it pertains to prescription drugs is no different in telling someone to have or not have surgery or interpreting diagnostic tests. These type of posts are against the rules.

The forums are intended as a patient resource. It is important to understand these forums in no way constitute medical advice. Your choice of treatment, or indeed whether to receive treatment at all, rests with you and your doctor(s).
We know that each member has differing needs, concerns, desires, and medical situations. The information provided may help you learn the opinions of other members, and may suggest questions you can ask of your doctors or research yourself, but is not medical advice.
If you are unsure if a new member is on the up and up, bring it to the attention of the Admin/Mod/Authority Team. We will do our best to determine what's up. Please do not take matters into your own hands. This seems to be where the problems are rising from. Let the team do their job. If you have any questions, feel free to PM anyone on the team.
