Just a quick note to say hi! My name is April and my doctor of 10 year's diagnosed me with fibromyalgia a little over 9 year's ago.I alway's complained about my back though I felt he was just blowing me off. I finally moved and switched doctor's, I was sent to a back specialist , my MRI and x-ray's already had shown that I had osteoarthiritis and disc degeneration. When I asked about the huge lump on my back he basically had no clue. I demanded that I wanted an answer so he sent me to a surgeon. The surgeon told me that my x-ray's and MRI obviously showed a fractured vertebra that had been there a long time. I had a spinal fusion 7 week's ago. Why did you need 3 surgeries? Now I 'm scared. Any advice? April
