About Me: Female, 73, Sacramento, CA, member since Nov 2008
I am 65 and have extreme spinal stenosis, fibromyalgia, Chron's Disease, and spinal disintigration. I am in pain constantly, however, I do receive excellent care from my doctors. I am on medications and they help me. Sometimes, though, the pain is too great for me to
[More] sleep or do much of anything even with the medication. I guess it is breakthrough pain. This happens about every other day. I am unable to stand more than 5 minutes without my legs and rear falling asleep and pain begins to set in. I am hoping this site will be an aid for me to continue to help myself. I am declared legally disabled, also.
