My Story:
Hi all! I'm new here; I came because I'm desperate for a better quality of life. I suffer extreme pain from some bulging discs, and just don't know what to do. I'm afraid that people will think I'm nuts, but I am completely open to drastic treatment if it would help me. I have SO much constant pain starting just beneath my waistline and down to my toes, esp. on the left side of my body.

I can't keep up with my family; can hardly do anything with them anymore, because the pain is SO debilitating for me. I have a VERY low threshold for pain, unfortunately. I try to deal with it, but tend to end up in tears..it just hurts so much. I wish that the whole part of my body that hurts so badly could safely be numb, for good. I wouldn't miss walking very much, I can hardly do it anyway, and would have a new lease on life even from a wheelchair if only the pain could be gone.

I am a wife and mom, and enjoy simple pleasures with family and friends. I just want to be able to truly enjoy them again.. pain has stolen so much away from me for what seems like such a long time.

I hope to find folks who might be able to relate and/or offer suggestions / help.

Thanks and God bless!
