Samantha In 1992 I had my bulging discs trimmed that were pushing on my spinal cord. Before that, the pain was really bad. I couldn't sit in a soft chair, lay down or stand very long. Could only walk a little bit until It overcame me with pain. After the surgery It was like a miracle. All the pain was gone. I have a 6 inch scar on my back. Now they do it and you recover right away it is so easy!. If you can get it fixed don't be afraid just do it! I know how awful you feel and I am so sorry for you! emoticon

The only med I take now is Naprosyn 500mg twice a day. It helps take the edge off, but does not take it all. I was on Lyrica which is what caused the weight gain. Funny thing is, I never had a lot of fibro pain, just the disc pain which is pretty bad. I can barely make it thru grocery shopping. I have been dealing with this pain for almost 20 years so I guess you can say I am used to it, in an odd way, but am so looking foward to dropping all the extra weight and being pain free (finges crossed :) )

I take Sam-e,St John's Wort and 5-htp all together and it helps my pain and mood.It has also let me lose weight instead of gaining it for the first time in years. Another good thing is they are all over the counter so I don't need a prescription for them and they are all natural! I have stomach issues so I can't take tylenol or any other pain meds.

How do you deal with the pain now? I take Tramadol at night, but the doctor doesn't give me enough to take during the day so I use Aleve. I have had real bad luck losing weight and have virtually given up. Need to get that spark back and get moving! We can do this!

Hi! I have been a member for a few years but have been back and forth on the weight lose journey. I have fibromyalgia and degenerative disc disease. Both of which cause me daily pain. I stopped taking meds due to an almost 50 lb weight gain which was a side effect of the meds. I am determined to lose the weight this time so I can enjoy my kids.and life pain free.
