    Hi. I am new to this group, but not new to chronic back pain. I've had it for 3 years now, one year after my cancer and osteoporosis diagnosis. For the first 1 1/2 years I've fractured my rib/vertebrae (9 in total) but have not fractured for two years now.

    Even so, I have severe debilitating spine/neck pain with spasms. Because I don't do well with opioids I am only taking Lyrica for pain and occasionally/rare cannibis use.

    In the last year my neck pain has been the worse....I've even had paresthesias in both arms with permanent loss of sensation in fingers. Traction of neck helps, I've also tried Botox also helps as neck pain ascends into occipital head and temples.

    Would love to hear from others....

    Prayers for wisdom for both the surgeons and us. I pray for healing as the first protocol. I find support in here just to know I am not suffering alone helps but I hate others have such great pain. Patience is a fruit and I need all I can get. I am willing to search and study other countries as well because mine is slow to accept or approve but that sometimes can be a good thing.
