Please share whatever information you are comfortable with about you and your experience with chronic pain:

I have been suffering from left flank pain for almost four months. After months and months of tests, procedures, and doctors visits, I have been diagnosed with myofascial pain and a dysfunctional quadratus lumborum muscle. I continue to work with a physical therapist, pain management doctor specializing in injections, and my primary care physician. This pain has affected every aspect of my life. I don't sleep well anymore, I have trouble focusing at work and doing my job, I haven't been able to do the things that I love like exercising and playing sports, and more than anything i am scared with having to live with this pain for the rest of my life. I need to assess coping skills and really want more than anything to connect with people who also are afflicted with chronic pain.

Introduction

I will be there. Looking forward to meeting everyone.
