You are in my thoughts and prayers.
I am a nurse also, LPN, and I have bone spurs, bulding discs, severe headaches , severe myalgia throughout my legs and arms and neck and back pain with muscle spasms for 2 1/2yrs. I have been to an Orthopod and a Neurologist, both had different opinions on surgery for me. I am left with either taking percocet tid,lyrica bid and trazadone in the hs. or finding another specialist for another opinion. It seems that these docs dont listen to what is going on with my symptoms. I am only 43 and do not want to be debilitated for the rest of my life. I have lost 2 jobs , due to my inability to work 12hr shifts and lift patients. Any words of wisdom?????
