Hey Guys.......I'm a Newbie here, looking for HOPE, HELP with DDD and Facet Joint Syndrome.

I've always had bad trouble, but in November my Facet Joint went nuts.

I have been MOSTLY DISABLED.....unable to do anything much.....since then.

Pain in back, hips, pelvic, legs.....then went to PT. The exercises gave me Piriformis Syndrome. Great....can't even do exercises.

Did one round of the SHOTS of Steriods under anthesia....I said NO MORE. Didn't help much and o' the fallout of steriods.

I'm heading to a Spinal Clinic on Monday of Next week......I HOPE I'll get some help there. My RHUMIE has sorely disappointed me. I have Fibromyalgia and Lupus also. Makes it a FUN TIME around here as the FIBRO grabs anything that has imflammation around it and it feels like a lion has hold of my spine.

I only have Ultram for the pain...........been taking it for 10 years for Fibro, so it has not touched my back pain. Antiflammatory is Relafen and Ibprofen.

I do not feel like I've gotten much help at all.

Have cried a river and felt hopeless to even get help, knowing this can turn into CHRONIC PAIN.....................I'd want to die if so.

I have been blessed by your post as I read through all I could at this SITTING...........MOST OF THEM....but have got to "GIT" up from this chair now as I can't SIT too long.............you know the drill.

ANY INPUT will be accepted with thanksgiving. :D

Happy to find you all, sorry you all are suffering too..........
