Hi Sarge (presuming you are enlisted). We have about the same back alments
only I've had surgries to try nad help mine. I sometimes wonder if they
have helped. In the near future I'm going to have a spinal stimular
installed in my back. In the past I've used a TENS unit which is none
invasive. What the military done to you so far? You might inquire about
what I listed above.
Where are you now? MOS? What software did you use for the BBS? I ran one
for years and the last was RA BBS, great fun. I was in FT Gordon, GA when
I retired in 92 as a 31Z5M.

Just a friendly hello from a newbie here.
Many ages ago, I helped a friend start a Fidonet 'echo' called Chronic
Pain. I think that was Linda Cummings? Not sure of the name now, almost
20 years later. That group moved off to usenet and it is possible this
group may be related in some vague way.
'There but for the grace of God, go I' was how it was then. Since then,
the good lord has decided which adversity I must deal with and I am happy
with his choice.
Progressive Degenerative disc disease (3 herniated, 1 in lower neck
affecting right arm, 2 in lower back affecting right leg) with developing
scoliosis. With reasonable care I am getting along fine and have a very
high pain tolerance per the doctors.
If there are others with back issues, I'd like to find out from you what
things work well. I am under current treatment through the military
(active duty 25 years, slated to retire in a year if they can keep me til
then, earlier if I cease being able to work my current job).
Rode hard and put away wet too many times
