Multiple issues

It started as foot pain. Had foot surgery. Crept up to my back. Back surgery. Now I have not only my back issues but, Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue, Migraines, Hypothyroidism and Major Depression.

I cannot stand for more than 15-20 min. I cannot sit for long and even in bed I am in pain. The waking up in pain is the worst.

I just want to feel good again. I just want to be happy.

I'm only 47.....I cannot live another 5-10+ yrs like this.

    im sorry :) hang in there! i keep moving and im in chronic pain daily. i have siatica at the moment along with a herniated C7 disk. i am avoiding surgery at all costs. It just opens the door for more surgeries. I have multiple issues that are too long to list and i manage to work 40 hours a week on top. This week so far my herniated lumbar disks are touching my nerves. My neck is stiff. I am tired all the time. I never sleep more then 2 hours in a row. I started massage therapy a few weeks ago. I am doing that 1 time a month for 1 hour. The first round was amazing :)
