Hello jenv1270, and welcome to our website!!

We are happy you found us and hope that you will find lots of help and support here.

If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact me, or John Lug our Sysop, or any of the CPS Support Team members. To do that, simply click under our name and you will see a drop down menu. Click on "Send Private Message" and we will get it and respond to you.

Again welcome, and we do look forward to getting to know you better. Stevie

Please donate to help continue to help others.

My journey with chronic pain began over 30 years ago, while as a young nurse working spinal rehab, I injured my back lifting a patient. I am now fused from L2-S1. I have multiple thoracic and cervical issues. I'm a retired RN/PA and I know and understand the frustrations on both ends of the treatment spectrum of dealing with CP. It's been my goal since 2008, when we started this site, to reach out and help as many people in pain as possible. We will continue the fight as long as we can. Please, if you can help us continue to help you and others, donate. Thank you.

Welcome Jen,

We are so glad you found us, as we were glad to find this website ourselves a while back.  

You have found a very safe and compassionate place to share, to ask questions, and to get some good advice.

Jeff :)
Ankylosing spondylitis & osteoporosis -> compression fractures -> facet & ligamentum flavum hypertrophy-> stenosis -> spinal cord & nerve root compression -> cervical myelopathy & radiculopathy -> bruise & deformation of my spinal cord -> incomplete spinal cord injury -> postlaminectomy syndrome of cervical region. Cervical laminectomy & fusion decompressed my cord but I now have severe chronic pain. Pain meds = Oxycontin, Percocet, Lyrica, Soma, Cymbalta, Voltaren Gel, & Ketamine pain cream. 11 surgeries including 5 orthopedic & 1 neurosurgery.

Please donate to help continue to help others.

Hi jenv1270,

Welcome to CPS! I am so pleased that you have joined us and look forward to getting to know you! But I'm also truly sorry that you're in pain! But if you are in pain then you will find support, sympathy and lots of information. When you are ready perhaps you would like to tell us a little about yourself? We are all here to help, so please feel free to ask any of us in the Support Group if you have any questions. I am sure you have come to the best place to find support from others who know what it's like to be in chronic pain.

Thank you all. 
I have had scoliosis since the age of about 12. I'm now 47. Two years ago I was diagnosed with "possible" Multiple Sclerosis. MRI's show multiple lesions but nothing active and no changes over the years so a diagnosis is not definitive. I have had back pain most of my adult life. In the last couple of years it has been constant. MRI's show some spurring, mild arthritis and bulging of discs but nothing that concerns my physicians.
