Hello Everyone, :)
HealingWell is a wonderful home w/ great forums and people. Wish I had found you years ago!
If anyone has questions about CSS, MS, MRIs, neuro symptoms, etc., I would love to help.
Have had MS entire lifetime, but not Dx until 2000. Grade-3 CSS, caused by age and MS DMTs (disease-modifying treatments), needs 2-lvl ACDF, but am not candidate for surgery (due to swallowing problems).
Dx Hx: Fibro --> ON --> TM --> MS --> CSS.
Current Rx: Methadone (nociceptive pain), Hydrocodone (break-thru nociceptive pain), Lyrica (neuropathic pain), Keppra (neuropathic eye pain), Baclofen (spasms, spasticity), Cymbalta (depression), Xanax (anxiety), Ambien (sleep). Taking a break from MS DMTs.
Looking forward to participating!
