Have suffered with low back pain since 2004, have had fibromyalgia (although it has never been formally diagnosed, I'm sure it is fibro, I have all the classic symptoms) since 1990 or so.I do get migraine headaches although they are fairly well controlled with a beta blocker now. I have disc degeneration in my L5-S1 and a herniation in there somewhere too, L3-L4 or L4-L5, I forget which. I have had a lot of wear and tear on my back from doing gymnastics as a kid and also my profession is notoriously hard on the back. I actually hurt it on the job-or at least the "straw that broke the camels back" happened at work. I'm sure the damage occured over time, it was just the one incident that brought it to notice. Trying to avoid surgery as best I can. Hoping to get support on this site and help others as much as I can. I love to educate people on medical issues and if I dont know an answer, I often have resources to find the answer. I've done a lot of research on back pain and treatments and have actually tried many of them myself. I have a good deal of knowledge related to eye diseases and treatments/surgeries and also I have experience in family planning (birth control etc) I feel the only dumb question is the unasked question.read less
