What type of back pain do you suffer from?

I suffer from chronic pain in my back, neck and head and a loss of mobility and ability in my arms, due to 4 severely herniated disks in my cervical and lumbar spine.

How long have you been living with back pain?

I have had constant pain for 13 years and counting.

How are you treating your pain?

I treat my pain with medication, physical therapy, and counseling. I am also considering surgery.

What do you hope to gain from joining this group?

No answer yet


I think of myself as an optimist and I think that had helped me deal with my pain over the years. But after 13 years of constant pain and giving up most of my coping mechanisms (yoga, etc), I am exhausted and having difficulty coping.
