    Hi Donna I see from your bio. you also have scoliosis. I couldnt have the operation as back then they didnt do one. I hav ehad it since I was 12. It has got pretty bad now and if I sneeze or cough I can put my spine out as my back isnt supporting me anymore.

    I dont know if going on Lexepro will help me as I am not on any other meds. at present. I am depressed because of nerve pain, in my neck and back and would need an antidepressant to help with all of these symptoms. I dont want to take any other meds. because of side effects.

    Elavil really helped me with sleep, nerve pain, depression but its the weight gain and heart problems that go iwth it I went off it.

    I just pray I get the right meds. as my life at present isnt great. I even had to give up the art which was lifesafer to me and cant stay long on the computor either because of the pain in my back, neck, shoulders. I also have tMJ disorder.
