Welcome to our community!
Our health issues are so much a like. I also asked you about the lyrica you had been taken, I wast just put on in a month ago. It was this comment you posted about weight gain w/ the lyrica, and the neurontin is what you preferred...Then, I also suffer from major depression and we are both dealing with various pain issues. I receive that spinal injection last Thurs. with slight relief noticed. Am having a lot of severe pain in my left knee due to have endoscopic surgery after Dec. on the menisic, but at present time it is swelling and extremely painful. I also have a deg. disc of the lower Lumbar/ Sac. area. with sever buldging discs. Am recovering from ankle reconstruction of my heel and 2 donner ligaments replaced so pain has pretty much taken over my life for a long time. Friend Needed
Skeetelmore, I did not know my message was going to be posted on a open form :( Thought it was to you only.
Just want to add that I wanted to be friends if that were ok with you. Thanks for your time.
OMG, I thought I'd never find you :) I remembered your message showed you were in the pain and weight tracker. I could not find you in the weight loss form when I typed in your name, but I tried again under the pain form and your here!
When I said OMG, I ment it seriously. I have so many of your same illnesses. I suffer with major depression, My pain issues are many, but at present the worst is my neck and shoulder. I have facet pain and nerve problems after an whiplash in 1985. It is now so bad. I also have degeneration and budlging disc of L5-S2 of my lower back since the 70's. I also have diabetes and High Blood Pressure. Recently I had ankle reconstruction on my left ankle which involved breaking my heel and repositioning it June 29th. along with replacing 2 ligaments from a doner.
Thanks Karen for your message. I will be sure to watch out for that. Hope you find relief too.
Hi How are you feeling? I haven't been on the computer much lately. I'm having carpel tunnel surgery this coming Friday so I'm trying to not use my hands so much. Please say a prayer for me on Friday, I know it's a simple procedure but I still worry. I hope everything is going good for you. Take Care. Peace Michele
Thank you again I will try to stay positive, I hope all is well for you at the moment?
Thank you for everything.
Just a quick note to say hi!
You are in my thoughts and prayers. It was good to hear from you.Sorry your still in pain. My doctor has ordered another MRI, he wants to see if I come have a spinal cord stimulator. Talk to you later.
Just a quick note to say hi! Hi Karen! How's the new year? Mine is ok. Have you gotten an appt with NS in AZ yet? I'm going in for quick surgery for carpel tunnel in my dominate hand on 3/5/10. They say it takes a couple of mths before it's back to normal but I figure 1 less pain is a start. Damn snow is killing me I ache all day and night. Oh well it could be worse..... I could have to shovel snow for a living! hahaha! Take care and keep me informed of how you're doing! Gentle hugs and God bless! Michele
You are in my thoughts and prayers.
Just a quick note to say hi! Hi! Yeah i think the NS will see you but probably not till after the new year. I'm trying to reach my ortho dr i need carpel tunnel surgery both hands. I wake from sleeping meds with the pain and pins and needles in my hands. And don't get me going on the pain in my lower back and left hip. Crazy pain!! My other half is coming tomorrow from up north so I'll be off the computer until at least Saturday. Have a Wonderful New Year I plan on it. I got a beautiful gift from my sister diamond earrings that belonged to my Mom. So many memories at this time of year I think sometimes pain gets worse from depression. God doesn't give us more than we can handle. Or so they say.... TTYL Michele
Just a quick note to say hi! Hi Sorry I'm so late wishing you a Merry Christmas. Please have a Wonderous New Year. I think I'm going out for chinese food then coming home before all the crazies head out. haha!! I hope Santa was good to you. Maybe the new year will bring a cure for chronic pain and fibromyalgia and every other disease out there. We got good news 2 days before xmas my brother in law's pet scan came back not showing any lesions from the cancer except on his lung but the liver, spine, kidneys are all clear. I know all it does is buy him more time and it's not a cure( 2nd bout of lung cancer) but it was wonderful gift from above. More time!! Thanks for thinking of me. We'll have to sit and talk sometime after the holidays. May God Bless and Keep You! Gentle hugs, Michele
Wishing you and yours, Peace!!!!,...... Much Love and Joy during this very Special Season and in the coming New Year!

Just a quick note to say hi! I have had surgery for Thoracic Outlet Syndrome. It has been five years since I had it. My older brother had the problem first. It took him forever to find a doctor that actually gave the problem a name. I was having the same symptoms on the same side. He had the surgery first and told me to go see his doctor. I did and two months later I had the surgery. I will talk to you about it if you want.
You are in my thoughts and prayers. Hey lady, sorry your still having so much pain. You are in my prayers.
Just a quick note to say hi!just wanted to say hi,we not talked but was touched by your situation.I am a singal mum of 3 disabled by whatever this illness is and spend alot of time in bed due to pain and fatiuge. I too put my faith in God everyday.
Just a quick note to say hi! Hey girl, I've missed talking to you. I hope your OK.
Just a quick note to say hi! Hey I haven't heard from you in awhile, how are you doing?
You're in my thoughts all the time, but especially today. Hey lady, how are you doing? I haven't heard from you in a few days. I hope your OK.
Thank you for the comment! xx
Just a quick note to say hi! I just wanted to share some good news. I was suppose to have my hearing for SSD tommorrow, I've been scared to death. My attorney just called and said that the judge has went ahead and approved it without the hearing. I feel like a ton of bricks has been lifted off of me. I've been waiting almost three years. I still can't believe it's finally over. I hope your doing better. Didn't you have another appt with your doctor?
Thanks for the note. I have only been in TN for a few years. I am from Michigan. I miss home a lot even though this city is ok, it's just not where I would like to be right now. So I guess you are from nashville?
Just a quick note to say hi! Sorry your mom is having problems. My mom has the same thing. She takes a blood pressure pills that lowers the top number and she's doing fine. I'm sure it's just a matter of getting her the right meds. So how are you doing? I will be going to my SSD hearing next week, say an extra prayer for me. Workers comp has approved me to have Botox injections in my neck, I hope it helps. I've read that it helps some, but makes some worse. With my bad luck that kind of scares me. But I got to try something.
