Also maybe finding it harder to come across words?
I started symptoms when I was 16, chiropractors and more chiropractors until my early 30's and I quit. Diagnosed at 43 :'( Two spinal fusion surgeries, 70% curve in my l 4, l 5 and because I walked around with a fractured screw for over a year after my first surgery that caused 6 discs to rupture which were caged in my second surgery along with rods, bigger now :/ pins screws etc etc etc, instead… read more
Is anyone bowel incontinent? I have started leaking out poo and I don't know it's there until I go to the loo and I, well, smell it! My GP is treating me for severe impacting, so I'm on Laxido, was on Lactulose but it didn't do the trick . But, since taking it (started last Friday) twice daily, from Monday this week, several times a day, there is always some poo (and I mean several wipes worth, we're going through loo roll at a rate of knots ) sometimes quite a bit on my… read more
Currently I am finding it very difficult to articulate myself. I know in my head the point I want to make, but cannot seem to get the correct words out.
I tend to use 100 words when 10 would be suffice. This issue has gotten so much worse in the last 12 months.

Do you find exercise helps with your illness'? I have PsA, Fibromyalgia and Severe Asthma- just to name a few. My husband thinks I need to start exercising, but I disagree. Walking takes a toll on me. Moving around hurts, even more. I don't think he understands the depth of my conditions. When a doctor (pain management) says they are sorry and there is nothing they can do for you, you would think....it's bad, really bad. I try to walk at least 500 steps daily. Some days are better than others.… read more
CRPS/RSD is a condition that flares when your emotions are high. Meaning stress levels and/or emotional turmoil. It causes feelings of burning, tearing, pin needles and it is not caused by inflammation. It is a disease of the sympathetic nervous system.
I didn't even know this existed until it attacked me, 7 years ago. I had trigger release on all 5 fingers of my right hand. At the time, I was dealing… read more
