My name is Christina and I am 29 years old. I have 3 biological children and God has blessed me with 2 more, my niece and nephew. They are 2,4,8,8 and 10. I have been married 5 years (yeah) on 3-20-2012. I couldn't ask for a better family!

I have suffered back pain for many years. It started as a teenager and it worsened with the birth of my second daughter. At this point I have had the "corrective surgery" and it didn't really help. I did great for the first 3 months after surgery then it all went downhill. I have tried medicine imaginable. I've taken lortab, percocet, baclofen. gabapentin, savella and others. I am currently on Lortab 10-500, Soma 350mg, and KlonoPIN 1mg. I have had injection after injection after injection. I have used every back brace known to man, I have tried creams and a tens-unit. I am completely at a loss at this point on what to do to control my pain.

I am open to any suggestions at this point and I believe it will help me to just talk to other people who have been through similar situations and also live with pain. So I am thinking that by joining an online support type group I can at the very least express myself to people that get what I'm saying.
