I have only been playing for 2 years BUT with the progression of my M.S. messing up the whole left side of my body & now 3 bulging discs in my neck messing with my whole right arm ( throwing arm ) feels like it's asleep & sharp pains shooting down to my elbow i'm forced to quit playing any disc golf among a bunch of other things i enjoy.

Hope to be able to play latter this year or next IF i get surgery on my neck

Hang in there---and root hard for the researchers. I know they're always seeking a cure, someday they'll find it.

I completely understand. I've had two brain surgeries and after playing for a while after my second, my body just couldn't do it anymore. I've also had many, many things taken away from me. But as they say, when one door closes...Just be open to what is coming. Everything does happen for a reason. It sounds cliche' but it's true...

Good luck with the MS. There are some new, over-the-counter supplements that I've heard can really help with that. I hope for your sake they do.

Only god can dig me out of this grave. I have always been so healthy BUT everything has gone down hill in the past year or so. Cause of my condition i haven't been able to work for the past year & 1/2 & trying to get disability is a royal pain & taken for ever. Not to mention both my knees are shot from pro BMX riding i did for the past 14 years.

I'm not looking for pity. I'm looking to get my life back.

Thanks for all your kind words

MS continues to climb my most-hated list. It is an evil disease.

UPDATE on my 3 bulging disc : I have been doing physical therapy & today i'm getting shots in my neck to help relieve pressure on my pinched nerves. IF the shots works to relieve the pain / right arm falling asleep I might get out & try playing a round.

Fingers crossed

Good for you. I hope they work! Just don't do more damage by over-doing it out on the course!

So i got the shot ( NOT PLEASANT ) Doc said in 2-3 days i should start to feel some relief.

Just in time for my 3 sons to visit from New jersey for a month. So we will get some practice / light workout in the back yard with my D.G.basket before i get up to the point of playing a full course round.

Got out to IQ Friday morning with my 3 sons ages 11, 9 & 6 played my 1st round in months. Only am pads & did OK

Only the 3rd time my boys have played in 2 years. had them play everything as par 6.

11 year old got a score of +2
9 year old +3
6 year old had fun

I didn't keep score cause i was to busy keeping theirs

good news & bad news

I got approved for disability. only took a little over 90 day & NO lawyer :-)

bad news is therapy & shots not helping my bulging discs in my neck & they think i have a ruptured disc instead. Surgery to come :-(

as far as back surgery goes i understand i had L4, L5 and L5, S1 operated on almost 4 years ago it is a slow recovery but i feel better now than i did before so it was worth it
