I did a good share of complaining over the last few months. I came here with disc problems myself. The spine doc had told me there was nothing else they could do and that I had permanent nerve damage. Well . . . I finally learned that I should have been seeing a rheumie and things were getting a lot better . . . but the sciatic pain is trying to return
Rheumi isn't sure that it is an autoimmune process but will watch and see what happens. He promised me that he would help me get relief from the pain . . . and he did.
You bring a whole new aspect to the forum . . . you have sooo many big issues (physically). Lots of people read these forums but don't post . . . so you are representative of many you will never meet.
Glad you are feeling a bit better. I hope you continue to heal.
In His Grip,
