Tomorrow I have an appt. with a neurosurgeon about my
neck. I am scared he won't take my pain seriosly and
how disabled I really am from my neck. It's going
on 7 months of chronic neck, face, arm, hand and finger
pain. I've tried neck traction, still doing PT and
feldenkrais classes, I can't do steroids anymore. I'm
on Lyrica, Ibuprofen, ultracet, Amrix and sometimes
percocet. I'm hoping to be a candidate for surgery now.
I want my life back. I'm desperate and would do anything
at this point. I don't mean to complain. I'm just
so happy this support group exists. People who haven't
experienced spinal pain don't understand.
