Where to start...cracked collar bone 6 or 7 times...broken ribs...my PT says I am " anatomically incorrect"..I guess my rib cage shifted...herniated disks from L3 to S1 and C2 to C6..3 or 4 broken cervical vertebrae...compressed sub-clavian vein..C5-C6 spinal fusion... and the C5-C6 root nerve is just plain damaged. It still shows compression after 2 years, but nobody wants to use the word "damaged" but after 2 years and still showing major compression? C'mon dude, just say it! Muscle tremors, appendages that just fall asleep. Also have AS and probably fibro. but they are so intertwined it's kinda hard to tell where 1 starts and the other leaves off. Methotrexate, diazepam, percocet, trazodone. I eat well, take vitamins, work out-stretch etc...The AS effects my eyes, toes, ankles, knees, hips, pelvis, fingers, wrists, elbows, shoulders, lower back, neck ( peace be to those with IBS or Chrones) I am lucky with that part. Not to say that I don't have groin problems with #1 and #2. Can't really control the muscles very well. Depression- I would be a fool to say no. CHRONIC Pain and fatigue..ever try to explain chronic fatigue to someone who has never had it- good luck with that one...Sleep-couple hours at a clip if I am lucky..Can't hike, fish, play an instrument, tend the garden but I do get help with that, can barely play catch with my kids, etc...Can't smoke the good stuff because of pain management and I can't drink, never wanted to crawl inside a bottle anyway. I used to be a Master Electrician with my own business-not even possible these days, now I am an errand boy for a supply company and it's getting VERY hard to do that. Can anyone relate- just knowing there is helps. Ideas-hints-comments on anything other than my grammer.lol Thanks
