Heya All,

I just registered with this site and figured I would introduce myself :H

My name is Tina. I live in Florida (nothing like sunshine to brighten a day).

I have multiple medical problems which include:
3 Herniated disks - lumbar spine
2 Bulging disks - lumbar spine
Permanent nerve damage lumbar spine and sciatic nerve
Cervical disk fusion C5-6
Permanent nerve damage cervical spine
Chronic pain
and to compound it all I also have Chronic Epstein-Barr virus with elevated titers in the 2000s, Fibromyalgia, Chronic fatigue and depression and anxiety (directly related to all of the above).

I currently see a neurologist, pain management specialist who is awesome! and my primary.

I am so happy to have this board. Lots of encouraging and positive messages here from what I have read and am grateful to have this board here. It helps to have somewhere to go and people dont look at you like you are a hypochondriac when you tell them what is wrong or how you feel.

Thanks for being here :H



  • Welcome to Spine health. I hope you will find support and suggestions here on the boards.

    It is a wealth of knowledge and experience (but we are mainly patients not medical professionals) but hopefully sharing our difficulties.

    Sadly a bad back doesn't look like the pain that it can cause. You won't find anything other than sympathetic writers here!
  • Tina. Sounds like a lot of issues to deal with. Glad that you are confident in your docs. Look forward to seeing you around.
