HI Everyone :H
I'm a 37 (well 37 on Sept 19th) yr old female diagnosed with severe degenerative disc disease of the lower spine, mild to moderate scoliosis, spinal stenosis, fibromyalgia and a host of gastrointestinal disorders....LOL
I've been off work since April of 2007 and it is driving me nuts.....well into a clinical depression anyway..
I'm going for an MRI on my lower back in October so the ortho doc can decide if he wants to do spinal anesthetic injections or do spinal fusion surgery.
I just saw a new family doctor yesterday for the first time and she seems quite understanding of chronic pain and has scheduled a physical for me in 2 weeks so she can fill out my application for CPP (canadian disability payments)
I've joined this forum in the hopes of meeting people like myself and educating myself further on my conditions, medications, surgeries etc etc
I hope to speak to you all at some point!
