My name is Sue & I've been suffering with back & leg pain for over 5 years. At first the pain was controlled by facet joint injections which would give me a couple of months relief alongside medication. I've now been told by the pain clinic that these injections would no longer be beneficial & I'm waiting for the results of an MRI to find out if anything can be done. The reason I've come on to this forum is basically in the hope that talking to like minded people will help me deal with the situation better. I'm now in constant pain in my back, legs, left arm & neck. I have to use a stick to walk & find that I'm limited I the things I can do. I'm lucky in the fact that my work has been incredibly helpful & understanding of my condition & does all they can to support me & help me stay at work. The hardest thing to come to terms with is that I'm now seen as disabled, a label I never thought I'd have. It's really hard for me to accept & I feel almost embarrassed about it. Does anyone else feel like this?
