Hi am am new to this. Just want to say I have had chronic pain since 1991. I have fibromyalgia. Now I have lower back pain that goes into my legs and sometimes my ankles just roll and I fall. One fall fractured my ankle, another one I fell on my back. I guess I have a naturally fused neck. It gives me limited movement. I also have copd, restless leg syndrom, barretes syndrom, which has led to depression. My meds are cymbalt gabbapentin, amytriptolin, protonix, hydrocodone, soma,advair, and ventolin. I am here to read what has already been said. I am also waiting on MRI results on my lumbar region. I have read many of the articals.

    ...you are going through. You found a great site to have support while you navigate through all your issues.
    The pain and inconveniences I am not minimizing.. but with my experience, I've found the depression to be the most challenging... the aloneness.
    It's good you are here. Talk...vent...whatever... You are not alone!
    Take care!
