Hi, just found this site, and I am glad to introduce myself. My name is Dan, and I was born with multiple anomalies in my spine. Did not know about my condition until I was 17 and was in the US Army. After 22 years of service in that org. I was lucky to be employed at the USPS. Now I am 52 and with chronic pain from neck to hips. Thanks to all that will respond to my post, so we can help each other.


  • That's great you have 22 years of service in the army. What kind of treatment have you had for your chronic pain? I've had pain for just a little over a year. It's manageable but ways of distracting from the pain is if you can develop some hobbies or learn what kind of excercises are right for your condition. See you around the posts. Take care. Charry

  • Hi charry. My treatment in the military was minimal, at that time I was young and only had mild back discomfort and pain, but over a year and half now, is only pain meds. that keeps me a little sane with hope to sleep each night. no operation is now in my future since my case the doctor say's is complicated.

  • Day by day, just keep trying to get well, or at least pain free. I know pain is by moments to moment. Dan
