New to the Forum and New to Chronic Pain as of Feb 2008
Id just like to say hello to all of you and to say that this site has so much information that has helped me attempt to understand my issues of Chronic Pain, how inflammation and depression are contributors to Chronic Pain and plenty of great articles on thousands of spine-health related subjects.
I took advantage of the RSS feed to get the most up-to-date information from the site and seem to have more information forwarded to me than I have time in the day to read it all.
I struggle every day with issues in my Spine that range from T4-T11 Bulging, Degeneration issues at all levels in the Lumbar Spine and complications with Oxycontin (withdrawal symptoms and side effects).
It seems that my life has been turned up-side down, everything has been shaken out of my pockets and I don't know how much more of having my head slammed on the concrete I can take.
Hopefully some day very soon I will get a grip on my Chronic Pain issues with help and support from people like you all and move on with some normality in my life.
Thanks so much for having me here.
