    Tired of the pain.....

    Hi everyone. I used to post here back in 2003 when I first had my two back surgeries. I really enjoyed talking to other people who had some of the same issues. Sometimes they really lifted my spirits just when I needed it. I have failed back surgery syndrome and have been in pain management since the first surgery. Hope to talk to others soon.

    Migraine

    Hello; Yes. Low Pressure systems are the major culprit of most people’s migraines. I live in Michigan and when the low is over the Heartlands the dreaded migraine starts to settle in. I will tell you that I take Naratriptan that knocks it out of me in usually less than an hour. Their is nothing in this world that is worse than a Migraine headache. And only us Migrainers know the truth. Good luck to you and I wish you a very blessed day and a migraine free life.

    unusual back pain - informal survey

    If you recently started having back pain that is unusual for you in type or duration, did you have the flu or a flu-like illness before the onset of pain? I had a flu-like illness in February (that I may have picked up while visiting a hospital) and immediately after recovery, I had lower back spasms that lasted for about 3 weeks. I have had a couple of instances since the 3 week episode where I had a sudden very painful stitch in the side rib area that seemed to migrate around to the back. Now,....
