Hi
I was dx with a crushed disc at base of spine 5 years ago, 3 years before I had fibro.

This link is about things that are common to fibromyalgia sufferers its quite long but about half way down is a bit about spinal disc degeneration

Yes i do too, right down the lower part of my tail bone.

Got my rubber ring to sit on now, as it is so painful.
My GP told me i might have done some damage by falling over, but nothing could be done about it because they cant get to that area. (if it was fractured.)

I had a disc removed and two vertibrae fused together after an accident at work in 1979.
It still gives me problems now as there was a lot of nerve damage as well.
If you add the fibro to that its not funny. I get a lot of lower back pain and sciatica as well.
Sometimes its painful just to walk across the room. Sitting for too long can cause my legs to go numb so I have to keep getting up and moveing around even if I am in a lot of pain.
I could go on but I am sure you all know what I mean. :roll: :) :needhug:

I too have disc problems.

I was diagnosed with Degenerative Disc Disease 3 years ago and it gives me real trouble.
