    Hello and welcome to the community @Laura_45 :) It's good to have you with us. 

    Would you be able to tell us a little more about the nerve condition you live with? This might help other members with a similar experience to find your post.

    Hi @Laura_45 - & welcome to this supportive community. I have a neurological condition called Chiari 1 Malformation, what's yours, if you don't mind me asking? My worst symptom is neuropathic pain; how are you affected? I hope to speak to you again, & my best wishes. :)

    Welcome to the community @laura45! It's lovely to have you with us. :smiley:

    I just wanted to stop by, say hello, and see how you were getting on. Have you had chance to have a good look around yet? I know you said in your original post that you'd been reading other people's posts and replies to see if that might help you to understand a bit more about your own condition. Has that helped you at all?

    Also, just to say that, even if you don't spot too many posts from people who share exactly the same experiences as yourself, there's still lots of folk here who are happy to chat and try to answer your questions, whatever they might be!

    Looking forward to seeing you around. Just give us a shout if we can be of any help. :)
