i was diagnosed about 3 months ago, but the pain and other symptoms i have dealt with for over 10 years. i feel like i am trapped in this shell of pain and i cant get out. i have 3 daughters and 2 grandchildren. i watch my grandbabies but it is painful and unbearable (physically speaking). i can hardley play with them in the floor. i have to have help getting up. i am 41 years old and wonder what my future holds. it all seems pretty grim right now. it has felt good to say some stuff, no one else in my family understands. What suggestions do you have? the med i take seems like it does not help.
