I went to a new doctor and they finally found the problem. I have a compressed spinal cord that's affecting the nerves in my skin, muscles and apparently some of my organs. I'm going to see a surgeon to see what can be done.

I just wanted to thank everyone for all the support and advice. Bless you!

Hi Spero,

It must be a great relief to at last get a diagnosis, even though it sounds as if it's a very painful condition. :(

At least now hopefully something can be done to help you and make your life a lot easier. :)

Dear Spero,

Well, I suppose in a way that must be a relief, at least to have a diagnosis. But spinal surgery doesn't sound like much fun at all. Please let us know how things progress, as it might be awhile before you are good as new (if indeed that can be achieved.)

Here are some flowers, just for you.

Warm Hugs,
