Hello everyone. I like you suffer from chronic pain. I have 5 herniated and degenerated discs. Im not going to spend a lot of time explaining who I am and how much I suffer. If you would like to know more about me then you can read my previous posts and introduction on this site. Im going to spend this time to give you some hope. This disease/injury has caused me to spend most of my time bedridden so I have a lot of time on my hands. One of the biggest things I do is research new approaches/discoveries that MAY benefit us spineys and could potentially get us out of our pain and disability. These are articles I have found over time to give hope in the advancements of treating DDD and herniated discs and the chronic pain and disability it causes us. I have a word document on my computer and every time I come across an article regarding this subject I paste the link in the document. This is the compilation I have come up with so far. I’d like this to be a page people go to regularly for hope. I would like for others to post things they have found as they find them beneath my post in the replies section. My hope is to give you hope. It is also for me not to lose hope. We are not alone!
