I had decompression surgery for my Arnold Chiari Malformation with Syringomyelia in 2004 and then had surgery for Tethered Cord Syndrome in 2006. But I still suffer with intense back pain, specifically pain between my shoulder blades. For the past 8+ years I have had to depend on pain medication which only takes the edge off. Now I've gained about 100 pounds due to in activity but once I try to do anything on my feet I start getting this pain between my shoulder blades so bad the pain radiates down both arms and if I ignore it long enough I get an intense migraine. Is there anyone out there that can PLEASE help me ? I can provide additional info later if needed, I just wanted to see if there is anyone out there anywhere that can help me. I had to retire from the US Post Office because of this pain. The pain started about 6 months before my surgery for Tethered Cord syndrome. That surgery did help alleviate all my other symptoms except this back pain.
