I just stumbled across your forum and I am so happily overwhelmed :) . I was starting to feel like no one else knew how I was feeling. Thank you for starting this forum. I just read the other posts and everything about the pain is exactly what I have been experiencing for 2 and a half years. Now I think I will show my Dr. so he knows there are others like me. My Ortho surgeon basically told me there really is nothing to do to my wedged T9, so learn to live with it. I was, but WCB finally admitted my work injury and now they are certain they can fix it. No need to mention that I have had a flare up from all their help.

Can't wait to hear from others.

  • Wow, sounds like you have the same injury as me. :jawdrop: My t9 is also shaped like a wedge from a fall 13 years ago. Approximately half the height of the vertabra is lost towards the front of my body.

    Got chronic muscle spasms? Nausea? pain, pain , pain :(
