I've had low level back pain in my lower back since I was pregnant with my son in 1994. But in 2014 I fell in the snow (barely bruised my butt) and the next day my back really ached. I didn't think much of it, we'd been shoveling snow so I figured I'd just overdone it. It continued hurting but dismissed it. Then got hit with a few medical issues (gynecological) and no one was explaining things properly so I got very afraid and stressed and suddenly my pain levels started skyrocketing. Not just my back, but my shoulders and knees (every injury I'd ever had suddenly was haunting me). I started missing work and managed to burn four weeks of vacation and four personal days in a couple of months. Plus FMLA.... July 23, 2014 I left work at the end of the day barely able to walk and crying. The next day I went to my doc and began the long process of diagnosing my fibro, DDD, arthritis, three ruptured lumbar disks, carpal tunnel, plus a few other wonderful things. As for remembering life without pain? I don't. It seems like I've always hurt. I know there used to be a time, I just can't remember. 😊 oh, and I've been out of work since that day in July.

I'm 21. My CRPS started 9/25/13. Yes I remember going ro the gym everyday in zero pain before this. I always went out dancing every weekend and lived life to the fullest. Now I'm thankful I did because I stay in bed 20hrs of the day now and my parents have to be my caregivers.

As long as I can remember, but I'm only 15, haven't ever lived without pain, just didn't know it wasn't normal until 11 or so, and it got much worse at 14.

I hurt my upper back in my 20's Dr told me it a as a pulled muscle and I would just have to live with it, in January 2010 I had a on the b job injury where I hung the toe of my shoe in the leg of a potty chair started to fall an caught the edge of the back of a chair twisted and slid over arm of chair hit the seat then slid down and landed on floor. Herniated disk @L4S1 with uprooted nerve, had to have a anteriordiskectomy on C5,6,7 with a titanium plate with 3 screws. I had a Syrinx from C7 to L12. I have Syringomyelia, Fibromyagia, Osteoarthritis, Degenerative disk disease, and Spondylosis as well as several more diseases. It is hard to be able to remember when I didn't have any pain.

My pain started in 1992 and got progressively worse within 2 years. I found a good team of doctors who all communication. So, it's been over 22 years with horrible pain and I have no clue to what it feels like any more to not have any pain any more.

I appreciate your honesty guys. My pain started when I was 14. Just one day I had a really bad headache. I thought nothing much of it. But two weeks later I still had it. Went to loads of doctors and tried loads of different medication and techniques for recovery. Some of it helped me in managing it but still I haven't ja one day in the past 2and a half years that I haven't had a headache. It's hard to enjoy everything. Normal ppl just don't get chronic pain

Mine started when I was an infant. It started with my shoulders. My Mom said people would try to pick my up using my arms and I would scream and cry until I finally fell asleep. 40+ years later we learned I had hEDS, and she was right, my shoulders were dislocating. I just got one wrist splint made Tuesday, it has cut my wrist dislocations in half. I've gone fron 20+ times per day down to about 10! Now if only I dared move around more...

Mine started when I was 20. Just found out I have ACM and a new 1 mm syrinx from a recent car accident.
