Ok, well I've been lurking around here for a bit now and I decided I needed to step up and introduce myself. I am a serious newbie in terms of message boards, posting,threads, and all other internet communication related issues so if I mess up I apologize in advance. I have found in the past that the internet was not such a friendly place so I've pretty much kept to myself but this seems like a friendly place with people who can understand and appreciate the issues that go along with chronic pain. A little about me is that I have had migraines, daily headaches and degenerative disc disease in my neck for over 15 years so I have been on the treadmill and have tried it all..magnetic pillows, TENS, massage, chiropractor, neck roll pillows, a $2,000 Sleep Number bed, injections, anti-depressants, and finally.. more injections to be scheduled and the Butrans patch. I am seriously considering an online physician referral service now as I have to ask very nicely, sparingly and with a crap load of shame and embarrassment for the pain medication that actually helps the pain and have found that I'm tired of begging for the $3 med that works and getting the $130 a month med that really doesn't... so that is basically my story. Sorry if its a book! I don't know how much useful posting I can do as I am here to find help myself but I will be glad to help in any way I can.. nice to meet ya all and here's to some relief!
