About Me: Female, 51, Port Alberni, member since Mar 2009
I've been suffering with Chronic Nerve Pain for about 10yrs now, It started in my arms, my Ulna Nerve's would become irritated and my hands and arms would swell to twice the size, then my nerves in my shoulders would get pinched for no reason, then I ended up herniating
[More] a disc in my back and being miss - diagnosed for 5 yrs, the disc in my back finally went splat, I had to have emergency surgery. I've been coping with exscrusitating pain now since my surgery and have undergone all types of Nerve Blocks... Methadone for the pain, Lydicaine infusions worked for a while (6 months)then stoped working, I'm now on a wait list for a nerve stimulator. The last of the last!!!
