As almost a 2 year member here, and one that is very pro-active in posting, supporting, I have a suggestion. This was stated by Ron (Dilauro - System Administrator) in part, but maybe by a member might hit?
I need help!
Immediate response please?
What can I do?
I hurt !!
What are your thoughts?
What is this?
My doctor hates me...
I like many read via "most most recent posts", and when we see these 'generic' titles IGNORE your post. Not because we don't care, but not enough information is posted to get our interest. Better would be....
My L5/S1 has stenosis, are these symptoms normal?
My thoracic has given me burning pain around my ribs....
I have a failed fusion, what are they going to do?
Are ESI's on the neck/back helpful - or didn't work?
I am scared with upcoming (cervical/thoracic/lumbar surgery)
I have bone spurs affecting nerves, what does that mean in the long run?
ALL CAPS = YELLING IN INTERNET... Don't use them!! (please)
Additionally, one LOOOONNNGGG post with no paragraphs or breaks, or better yet, NO punctuation. It is very hard to keep track on a 'run-on' post, and even more so without punctuation. Sorry, but when you tell us you are past high school age, and can't even add a period to end a sentence... well.
I'm sure some will see me as a meanie here, but I read a lot, and try to help, as I too have multiple issues and surgeries coming, but find relief in helping. Just my thoughts here, and hopes that some realize that more info is good, and the posts themselves (paragraphs, punctuation) helps us and YOU a lot. Most do not fall into this post grouping, but lately more and more are doing this. Also, the Internet short hand .... I love U, How R U... please..
