My Story:
Personal Info: Currently disabled/retired living with my wonderful wife, two young adult sons, 3 dogs and 4 cats. I have managed moderate to mostly severe chronic pain for over 35 years. I've been a member of WebMD for over 10 years.

Spinal Conditions: Hyperkyphosis (thoracic section curved outward too much), osteoarthritis in my spine and entire body, DDD, 7-8 herniated discs, stenosis at all 3 levels of spine, spurs at all 3 levels of spine, major problems at T12/L1.

Spinal Pain Management Methods: Chiropractic adjustments, Sleep Number bed, good recliner, enteric coated aspirin and muscle relaxer. Allergic to all narcotic prescription pain medications. Now seeing a pain management specialist that is a phyiatrist and he is helping with steroid injections and eventually a rhizotomy.

Philosophy: My family and faith help me to keep a positive attitude.

Motto: Keep doing your research. Keep moving as much as possible. Keep a positive attitude.
