Like Most Here, I Too Am New
I'm Sarah. I live in the U.S. in Minnesota. I turned 16 last month and I've had back pain since I was 8 from Juvenile Degenerative Disc Disease. Since my younger age I've not had much in treatment or pain managment. I have done physical therapy but with no success to alleviate the pain. I am unable to take NSAIDs or such other similar pain relivers because of my Acid Reflex Disease. I'm praying that in the very near future something will help with the pain.
P.S. The smileys are some of the best I've seen ^_^
