Hi @lorettat, I wanted to take a moment and welcome you to Mayo Clinic Connect. I did get your private message, but I am so glad you decided to share your story with the group. Connect has lots of members that share your similar experiences. I'd like to invite @anniejam, @twocents, @degarden_girl, @cobweb, @Drew944, @anniejam, and @crhp194 to join your conversation and share what they have experienced. I am so sorry you are dealing with constant pain, lack of sleep and problems with insurance while dealing with this diagnosis.
@lorettat, I know you mentioned that you were started on a medication. Were you able to still start it given the high price? Did you ask the pharmacy if there was a generic form that the doctor could call in instead?

Have my appt with surgeon next week to review my tests. Trying to destress in this political season. Keep exercising and not lifting over 50. I guess you can worry yourself to death or go with the flow.
