New here, with worsening cervical pain

I am a working mom, married and dealing with a lot of pain. Some of it seems mysterious and has been identified by a rheumatologist that is fibromyalgia. But as she clearly pointed out the cervical degeneration in my neck was a whole separate source. I have seen physiatrrists,orthopediasts, neurologist, but lately a rheumatologist and lately a pain solution -anesthesiology who specializes in pain solutions. I was hit head on in 1988 and fractured C6. Spend 8 months in a brace for it to fuse and was let loose in the world. It took me years to get thru a day. My level of pain was tolerable for a while but exhausting and I was first diagnosed with fibromyalgia which was before anyone believed it was real. I know have radiculopathy, stenosis,DJD, bursitis, scoliosis and they are looking at me for myelopathy. As I said I'm 44 and working with a husband and a child. I come here hoping to learn more, find people who can relate, relate and support people. I'd love to compare notes and meet people who can understand what they can't see.
