Hello, I’m new to the group and hope to make a few friends who understand chronic pain. Especially back pain. I was diagnosed with Adheasive Arachnoiditis about 3 years ago. I didn’t know then really what I was dealing with and neither did the doctor I had then. About a year ago I found a doctor about 3 hours from where I live who has been very understanding with my condition. The pain has been controlled with my medication enough that I can work part time. All in all my pain seems to be something I can live with however the depression and anxiety issues seem to be tough to deal with. I know, more meds right. Well that’s my intro and thanks for reading.
