    So sorry that you are back again with this pain. :-(

    Have you got an appointment with your spine doctor to let them know about this?
    I hope that they will listen and explore to see what is going on and why you are back in pain.

    Just had the same thing happen to me when I thought I had a handle on this pain. It is so depressing - first hope then desolation.

    I just had a bone scan where they did an all over scan and somehow got it from a different angle and bone where it shouldn't be showed up for the first time in 8 years of absolute hell. I have a new surgeon and he is great and couldn't believe what had happened to me.

    I take my blurbs from spine health along so don't have to explain the whole thing again and he was really good. It's depressing having setbacks and I know you've been through your fair share.

    Look after yourself my friend 'cause no one else will. Hope your pain evens out. I feel vindicated by the new findings - knew something was outa place deep inside my body and kept asking if it could be glass from the accident. Not glass - it's bone!! Hurts heaps but at least I know why.

    But it's about you and I want your pain to go away. maybe try taking it easier I know it's hard but you have to take care.
    Pain sucks, worse thing is the telly sucks more.
