Looking for others with widespread chronic myofascial pain
Hello everyone! I have had chronic pain for just over 8 years. I have the following pain issues:
Widespread Chronic Myofascial Pain (CMP)DDD - 9 bulging/herniated discs (at last MRI)Stenosis,Spondylosis,Peripheral NeuropathyI have an amazing PM doc, who I have seen for the past 7 years and I thank God for him every day. I am married to an amazing, supportive man for 20+ years, 2 daughters (One still with us, aged 24 and one with the angels, would be 8 years old) and am just trying to live the best and most productive life that I can. My current med regimine is:Oxycontin 20mg. 4x/dayNorco 10/325mg. up to 6/daySoma 350mg. 3x/dayXanax .5mg. as needed for anxiety and as supplemental Muscle Relaxer, occasionally, PRNI've had a bit of difficulty finding others with CMP on any other forums and would appreciate hearing from any who have this condition. I also suffer from back and spine issues, so you'll surely see me posting in several forums. I look forward to getting to know the members here and finding out each person's story and personal journey with chronic pain. Please bear with me, as I learn to navigate this site. Looks similar to another forum that I participate in and hopefully, I should pick this one up quickly. I'll probably be doing more reading than posting for a bit, so that I can get aquainted with this forum and the people here.I wish you all peace and comfort from the pain. Blessings, Mitzi
