Back Problems board


Hi Everyone :wave:

I am sorry I haven't posted here in awhile, but I have been feeling pretty good lately and am back to enjoying life again. I finally have some control over the pain that use to rule my life every second and minute of the day.

I finally stopped taking the Ambien on a daily basis, and now I am able to sleep without it. I had some sleepless nights in the beginning, but now I am finally back on my regular schedule.

As far as my depression, I am now taking Celexa. I can't believe what a difference it has made in my life. It has helped with my anger, patience and my anxiety. I almost feel like a new person :D
I didn't have any side effects like I did when I tried the Paxil CR. This medication has totally changed my outlook on life.

I have also cut back on my pain medication, which has been really hard to do. The withdraw symptoms are just horriable! I can't beleive that a pill can have that much control over me, but it does. I would like to have said, that I am completley off of all my pain medication, but I can't.....not yet!

I am a little concerned about something that has been bothering me. If anyone has any ideas or suggestions, please let me know. I have been getting pain under both my ribs for about two weeks now, do I need to be concerned about this? When I lay down on my back and lift my shirt up, my left rib looks swollen or bigger then the other side. Has this ever happened to anyone? Has anyone ever heard of this? I would appreciate any advice on this.

I would also like to thank each and everyone of you for helping me get through one of the toughest times in my life. This board helped me to reconize that I was depressed and that I should seek help. This was one of the hardest, but best things that I could have done for myself. I was very embarressed about being depressed, but I knew something was going on with me emotionally, and I needed to get help for it, and now I am feeling so much better......THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!

You guys are my :angel:. I will never forget all the wonderful support that I was given by a great group of caring people. I pray that each and everyone one of you will be pain free someday soon.

((((((HUGS TO YOU ALL))))))))))))))

God Bless,
