I am a 48 year old woman with multiple chronic pain conditions in my back and neck. Cervical and lumbar herniations have been found on MRIs, along with spinal stenosis and facet joint syndrome in my in my entire spine including thoracic. Most recently diagnosed with nerve damage in both elbows and a tear in meniscus in right knee. Luckily I have found a great pain management doctor. Dealing with e pain is sometimes discouraging but I try and remain active and positive.
I look forward to reading others experiences and hopefully lending support.
