Sep 26, 2018 · Chronic Pain members - Welcome, please introduce yourself in Chronic Pain

Hi! I have good days and not-so-good days, or sometimes hours that I am able to function and hours I cannot. I am dealing with pain from spinal stenosis, scoliosis, kephosis, herniated bulging and retropulsed discs. I have had five spontaneous spinal fractures with no known cause; I do not have osteoporosis. Frequent shingles, UTIs and bronchitis. I also have Lyme and co-infections which were undiagnosed for 3 1/2 years which destroyed my digestive system and caused respiratory problems, muscle cramping and neuropathy (the muscle cramping and neuropathy have resolved with meds for Lyme.) I try to do my best, fix my hair and wear a little makeup when I'm up to it. As a result, many people say "But you look great!" Yeah, just don't come look at my house. What do you answer to that?

Don't be foolish like I was and just tough it out. I have lost 2 1/2 inches in height due to multiple spinal fractures. Wearing the back brace really helps.

Sep 26, 2018 · Mucus in throat but lungs and sinuses clear in Ear, Nose & Throat (ENT)

I have the same problem. I learned I have LPR Larengo Pharengal Reflux, also called non-acid reflux on non-acid GERD. There is a great book called "Stomach Acid is good for you" that helped me a lot. My G.i. refused to test my stomach acid, but I found out my stomach acid is low, so things back up and irritate my throat, which reacts by creating mucus. I also take digestive enzymes. For me, with the clear sinus and clear lungs, but chocking on mucus, and constantly coughing it up, that 's what it turned out to be for me. It might be different for you.
