    Yes, I do. It's horrible too I hate it. A nerve test/study was done and it all came up. I have a T10 to illium fusion almost 3 years ago and the nerve issues started to show up several months later, and it's been progressively getting worse. How long ago was your fusion surgery?

        you have some healing still ahead of you. It was over a year before I was fully fused. What are you doing to help with the nerve pain, do they think it's permanent too?

    I'm sorry, it's a terrible thing to have. You have numbness and tingling too? That I learned can be relieved with anything rough on the skin, like one of those scratchy bath mitts. The tops of my legs drive me nuts sometimes. Does ice help?

    I had neck and spinal surgery several years ago. Since that time have had problems with breathing and overall mobility issues. My respiratory issues are getting progressively worse. I sleep with 2 liters oxygen which is helpful to a degree but not total problem Any suggestions for my issues would be greatly appreciated.
