You're in my thoughts all the time, but especially today. I know how hard it is, it struggle every day. Email me ifyou need to talk. I have been throught hell myself. God Bless
Just a quick note to say hi! My name is brook and I have arachnoiditis. I have had three back surgeries and 13 screws and a neck fusion. I know how you feel, trust me. Write me sometime and we can chat.
I can totally relate to what you are going thru. I fell in 2002 fracturing my coccyx and herniated and tore 3 other discs. In fact now I don't have a decent lumbar disc left. I have been to lots of MD's myself along the way. Lots of Meds, therapies etc. I even had my coccyx removed. Don't ever feel that you are alone in your struggle there are a lot of us out here..
I also have a lot of other medical issues.
Just wanted to let you know I can relate. If you ever want to talk, I'm a click away. It seems the more we complain the more Rx's we accumulate. That's the MD's way. I'm so sorry you're hurting, I fully understand as I have been there, and it sux. I wish you the best and my prayers are with you. Believe me, the medicine is not the answer, the Dr's give pills for symptoms of the side effects of other pills, so be carefule there. It's way to easy to get ever medicated. if you are on more that 5 medicines you need to rethink. Hope you find answers soon.
Just a quick note to say hi! Hang in there! There will be good days and bad - that is a given. And it has nothing to do with MS - THAT'S LIFE!!!! By the way are you taking anything for high blood pressure? My doctor put me on sometime for a slient elevated BP. It gave such lower back pain that I could hardly get out of bed. I stopped taking it and I never heard a thing from my doctor about my "elevated BP". It just shows you that YOU need to me aware of everything that effects you. Be am active participant in your medical care. Good Luck!
You need to go see a worker's comp lawyer and discuss what your options are. First see if your company can provide work that is suitable for you, if not then maybe it's time to file a worker's comp suit and go that route. You can't go this alone, a worker's comp lawyer understands what you are going through and can be a real help in making decisions on what's best for you.
best of luck to you, hope you get well soon
Hi JMar, I am a 44 yr old F who had an accident about 6 weeks ago involving my back. I had an MRI and I have 3 bulging discs and the lower one is torn and protruding. I am only beginning the journey of doctors, doctors and more doctors and already I am sick of it. I see a neurologist next week and am dreading it. My back hurts alot and there's just nothing that relieves the pain, I know how you feel. I am engaged and he's active and I feel like a great big buzzkill because he can do things and I can't anymore. I have surrended myself to narcotics now and hope to GOD I don't get addicted. I know how you are feeling and I'm so sorry. Feel free to contact me anytime you want to just vent
Sure thing, your in my prayers tonight. I am hurting really bad at the moment too. I have a wisdom tooth poking through and its making my jaw ache like crazy. I hope your doing better than me as of recent. My migraines and neck have been getting a little better though. I started doing the Wii Fit Game and working on yoga. Its been a thrill that I can exercise again and not the jarring stress on the neck pain. I hope that this helps me cause the pills and all that are not doing much but making me a zombie.
Oh Sweetie, I definately can relate to the frustrations of Dr's. I am sooo sorry you are having such a tough time with the pain and the unsympathetic Dr's. Have you ever tried a Tens Unit? It can give a person some relief from back pain. I have one, and I love it. They are a little pricey but they are worth every penny. You place electrodes on the affected area and plug them into the unit, you can set it to do a rolling shock or a pulverizing shock. I would check into one and also there are some patches called Lidoderm,they are a pain relieving patch made from Lidocaine. You can wear them for 12 hours at a time.
I hope the Dr's @ Winston Salem can come up with a treatment plan for you Sweetie. Hang in there and don't give up on yourself!!!!
You are in my thoughts and prayers.
It always helps to hear another's battle has been won! I too am taking it easy and it's a slow process, but I am one day everyday closer!!
Hope you feel better soon! I know what you mean about the 90 year old back!!! I have some secrets about insurance companies and disability companies if you are interested. I was dx'd with Stills disease and it is a very rare arthritis, I am 31 with a 90 year olds body myself. I can try to help you. Your Friend, Ada
You deserve a big bear hug!
Just a quick note to say hi!
My sister suffers from that as well! I hope you are ok! My life is upside down right now, sorry I haven't been on here much!
You're in my thoughts all the time, but especially today.
You deserve a big bear hug!
You deserve a big bear hug! I know you don't know me, but I just wanted to send a hug your way and a prayer for you that things get better.....
