I have had to deal with pain from vasculitis chronic headaches, migraines, fibromyalgia, osteoarthritis, osteoperosis, spinal stenosis and now this darned degenerative disked disease, the d.d.d if kicking my butt. Omg, the pain is unreal. I have another week until my fist appt. with the orthopedic surgeon. I hope and pray I don't have to have hip surgery, but that is the type of dr. my general physician referred me to. This pain is the worst pain I have ever been in. On the pain scale I am well over a 10!!! Just don't know how much more I can take.
