I am new,my name is Sandy. I am 49,single mom from WI.
I have multiple ailments going on and it took me years to finally get diagnosises.Here are some(so you know my background):
Fibromyalgia, osteoarthritis(knees,shoulders,hands,feet,elbow-you get the picture),Degenerative Disc Disease(L-4/L-5), TMJ syndrome, myofacial pain syndrome, achille's tendonits, plantar faciitis, ulcerative colitis, chronic daily headaches, chronic migraines(regular and hormonal)and then lets add in depression and anxiety.Oh I forgot, I do have brain lesions. The last MRI in 2003 showed I had 4-5 of them, apparently caused by my migraines.
I have had so much 'therapy',and I do take daily meds.
The one issue I have that NEVER gets better is my neckache. I have had it since 1987.All I can say is,I have had 9 whiplashes in my life. My last MRI did show a bulging disc with degeneration the Drs. just blow me off and say...'everyone has some degernation as they age'.That leads to another story....I just wnated to introduce myslef.
