Hi All,
So happy that there is finally some movement in this group. I have been looking for a chronic pain support group for months & months. There are shockingly few & none that I found whom are really active. My name is andrew & I have cervical stenosis in C4-C7 & osteo arthritis. Additionally, I have three herniated discs in my lumbar (two years ago it was only two) & degenerative disc disease. I had a cervical lamenectomy in April of  2009, which I am told helped curb the encroaching nerve damage, but left me in even more pain then pre-operative. Recently, there was talk that I might have to have total fusion, but it turned out that my neck is so riddled with arthritis that it is acting as a fusing's that for bad news is good news? I have to take an insane amount of narcotics just to get through an average day. I am delighted that we are going to meet & I look forward to seeing everyone.

Hello Everyone,
We have all joined this group because we suffer from chronic back pain. I started this group because people just don't understand how back pain can drastically change your life unless they also suffer from back pain. I would love to see this group get active with meetups so we can support each other. I do realize that many of you won't be able to make a meetup due to your back pain but for those that can I ask you to please come out and support each other.
I would like to see the message board get active especially for those of you that cannot come out. So I am going to start it now with this question,
What is the cause of your back pain? How long have you been suffering with back pain?
I have two herniated disks in my lumbar spine, L2 and L3, plus I have two more enlarged disks, and my spine is twisted to the left in the lumbar area,
I have had this pain for the past 6 years.
Kim Larae,
