    Not a question, just an introduction

    Hello, a fellow sufferer from Iowa. After 36 ESI injections, 4 that required blood patches, I finally got my diagnosis and started on SS disability three years ago. I never realized there was a message board, and am having a rough week, so rather than lurk, am taking the opportunity to introduce first and lurk next.

    Glad to be aboard.

    Julie

    Hi Julie, I'm so sorry! I'm having a very rough day too. I've had it since 1988 and because I've had a pantopaque myelogram, 50+ ESI's, 4 back surgeries including dural patches i will never know the exact cause. I usually have pain at L4-5 - S1 but I am having new pain that's located on sacral spine and so far nothing I have tried relieves
    it. I'm trying to figure out a way to describe the squeezing and "drawing up" sensation I'm feeling. Like a hand squeezing and pulling up from the inside and like I am stuck to a high voltage electrical socket and can't get off of it! What kind of pain are you having? I hope your pain subsides to a lower level very soon! Sending you hope and strength!
