Hi everyone, I'm new here. Just looking for some support and understanding. Most people in my life don't understand the pain that I am constantly in and therefore its hard and lonely.
I was diagnosed with Congenital Spinal Stenosis in 2010. I also have arthritis in my neck and lower back as well as some SI issues. I have a herniated and bulging discs in the L4-L5 areas. I am in constant pain and I live in constant fear that I will do something to put my back out for weeks on end. I have a 12 year old daughter who I am raising by myself and she keeps me busy with tournament softball so I have to be able to be mobile! Im just frustrated with these doctors who wont help! They keep on saying just take the steroid shots, take prednisone, ibruprofen and Tylenol. When will I feel better??
