The pain started in March 1979, Am in Pain EVERY SINGLE DAY! PAIN keeps me from living life, from Family, Friends, From Eating, or Enjoying an & all Things. Only Physical work i do is helping my Mama 96 yrs. Old & has had Dementia for 15 yrs. I fix her food feed her help to & from the bathroom & back into bed lifting her legs thighs into bed scooting her over so she won't fall out of bed. All these things cause me horrible Pain. Lifting or carring anything over size of 2 loafs of bread causes me PAIN.
