Welcome to Spine-Health

Hi angelgirl34--welcome to Spine-Health support forum. You've come to the right place to share and to learn.

The problems you describe are very different than anything I've experienced or even heard of, for the most part, so the best I can do is give you a warm welcome and encourage you to use the Search function to hopefully gather information. We may not share the same problems, but many of us know what it's like to feel twice our age and to be searching for answers that seem elusive. Smile
