New Pain - New to forum

Hi everyone:

I'm new to this forum. I have a congenital birth defect that's been letting me live my life up until August of this year. There was really no reason for the pain to flare up. I have done physical therapy, drug therapy, and a new therapy that increases blood flow to the affected area by using electromagnetic stimulation. With these three put together, I am able to function,

The defect affects my L3 and L4, and I'm not familiar with the terminology, but there is a fusion, fracture and possible disk herniation.

I joined here so I could talk to like minded people that are going through the same thing that I am. So, I just thought I'd introduce myself and say hi.

So.... hi :)
