About Me: Female, 48, Woodville, TX, member since May 2008
I have chronic pain and have most of my adult life. I have plantar fasciitis, which lead to heel spurs in BOTH feet & chronic back pain starting around age 17, and headaches almost daily. I had a gastric-bypass in 2002. Since losing lots of weight, my pain has tripled.
The doctors haven't tried very hard to really find out why I am in so much pain, nor do they try hard to help.
I recently saw a chiro who said I have mild scoliosis or something - slight curve in spine starting at neck...got a REAL radiologist to xray me and they reported nothing significant! WHY do I have this disabiling pain?! It is all my muscles as well, that just started in the last year. Why won't the doctors TRY to find out what is WRONG? I also have chronic fatigue. NO ONE BELIEVES ME that this is all real.
Im here to find people suffering with the same things and for support. Would love to make new friends at the same time.
Please do not comment or msg me if you are going to be rude, thanks. My life is difficult enough as it is.

You are in my thoughts and prayers. Hi I am Cindee. I suffer from chronic back, neck, all joints pain and swelling and many, many other health issues. Life is very hard and I don't get out at all either--can't sit, stand or walk. My husband had gastric bypass---he had a lot of problems.
Anyway,I'm always here to talk.
You deserve a big bear hug! I know what your going thru . I been there. Keep the faith and you'll find something thay helps. I take Cymbalta, meloxicam, tramdol, heating pad, TENS, rubs , PT and now water therapy. Everyone seems needs a combo. I take vitamins too. Anyway love I'm here anytime you need a ear.
I thought you live in Dallas. Are you in Houston now? I believe one of the university there actually has ME/CFS research...I will find the link if I can.Otherwise, I think it might worth you a drive back to Dallas and see doctors there. There're many non-profit organizations to help ME-CFS patients in need. Let me know what you might need, I will do my best to find info for you.
I know how it feels by being sick with ME-CFS for 15 yrs, along with FMS, Addison Disease, hopothyroidism all stemmed from ME-CFS. It is not easy to stay positive, and chin up 24/7. Feel free to vent, when/if you need someone to just listen.
a big bear hug!
