New member!

Hi everyone,

I joined because I'm having some really bad lower back pain and wanted to get some insight. I realize coming on a forum is not the same as seeing a doctor, but I thought I would try nonetheless. Maybe others have had the same experience I am having.

Looking forward to chatting!


  • Also I'm trying to post something in another forum and it's not letting me. It says "login to post new topic" but when I click "login" it just refreshes the page and there's no "new topic" button or anything...Very strange.

I'm pretty sure you will find someone here that knows what you are going through... So, please don't hesitate to talk in the group or personally to all of us...
    Hope that you are having a great and painfree day today...

  • Welcome Kambrielle!!

    Spine-Health does have a (mostly!) great group of people that like to help out others that are unforunately new (or not new!) to spine issues. Looking forward to seeing you on the forums! :-)
