About Me: Female, 61, auburn, CA, member since Jan 2010
Many medical problems. Brain surgery to remove AVM in 1999. 2006 had laminectomy with fusion on L4, L5, L6. In 2007 had the same on C4, C5, C6. In 2008 had the same to connect my first down to S1. In lamens terms, basically they should have put a zipper in me from m
[More]y neck to my butt. No more surgeries, NO MORE! But, since 2008 I have had an "ice pick" pain in my upper right arm, which gradually has gotten worse. Now, the pain has grown to include my shoulder. I can't lift my lower arm without it hurting and my shoulder hurting. Once I get to a certain point, the pain decreases. It's getting worse almost daily, and especially nightly! The x-ray said arthritis/tendinitis in the shoulder, but WHY did my arm hurt for 2 years before the shoulder?
That's a little about me. Waa Waa Waa. Also, I'm 55, retired, getting permanent disability, married, 5 kids and 5 grandkids and another on the way. In a lot of pain all the time and very interested in finding out if there is any real people out there experiencing the same or have knowledge of any cures.
