My Story

I hate to identify myself by my ailments but it has given me insight into chronic pain. I have Severe, Generalized, Multi Site Osteoarthritis. I have carpal tunnel and Fibromyalgia. I have had 3 back surgeries, 4 carpal tunnel release surgeries, 2 ulnar nerve transpositions, parotidectomy. I understand chronic pain and treatment modalities all too well and their limitations.
