Hello Country,
I wanted to welcome you also. I, too, have spinal issues, as do many of the members here. You will find a wealth of good information under the "Chronic Pain 101" section...and you will meet so many caring and non-judgemental people on this site.

Tell us more about yourself when you have time and feel up to it. I look forward to getting to know you better.
DDD, 3 bulging lumbar discs, bone spurs, facet joint arthrosis/sclerosis, osteoarthritis, possible fibromyalgia (my dr's are telling me that I "most likely" have fibro but won't actually diagnose it...)
