This is my first time posting. My name is Nick. I suffer from 3 bulging discs in my neck, one with mild stenosis in the spinal canal and a herniated disc in my lower back that has nerve damage at the nerve root. Due to the issues I have developed really poor posture I have developed scoliosis and now have a 2+ inch curve in my spine in the middle of my back.
I decided to do some searching for a support group because I feel horrible always laying it on my wife and it seems like the only people who understand how bad the pain can be are people who suffer from similar issues.
I originally hurt my lower back in 2005 right after Hurricane Katrina destroyed my job. I took a labor job rather than sit on my butt and I've been regretting that decision since November '05. I'm not sure what happened to my neck if it's just an effect of poor posture or if it's related to my lower back injury.
I am not sure how much detail I should go into on my introduction but I wanted to say hello and hopefully find a kind soul to point me in a general direction so I don't break any of the rules that I sort of sped-read through.
Thanks for reading.
