Hello new to this forum and just starting on my journey
I'm a 38 years old and new to this forum. I've been reading on the boards for the past few weeks and thought I'd join tonight. I've been dealing with back pain for as long as I can remember, but I was able to deal with it until about 6 months ago when things started to get bad and I was able to "ignore" the problem any longer as it was not going away. I have learned that I have severe degenerative disc disease, and scoliosis along with some other diagnosis that I seem to be "gaining" with each new test that the doctor does. So, I am so appreciative of this site and you all who are here. Thanks for reading as I appreciate all the insight I can get!
