About Me: Female, 51, San Diego, CA, member since Aug 2010
I am a board certified and state licensed microbiologist but have worked in both clinical and research aspects of microbiology. I enjoy helping people and normally jog, play tennis, hike, snorkel and travel. And, I have been in great health until about 4 years ago. I go
[More]t Tendonitis in both wrists from work as a research microbiologist. I lost my job due to that injury and then was walking my dog and she was tied to my waist and she yanked me and I got a back injury. The MRI was normal. The physical therapist thought that it was a torn ligament near the SI joint. I got better after about 6 months , had no pain at all. A year and a half later after much family stress due to deaths in the family I was doing simple stretching yoga and I pulled my back in the same place.MRI was still normal and bone scan normal. It hurt but wasn't so bad until I went to a different physical therapist and he injured me by doing manual therapy on the wrong leg. I was in severe pain (never had pain like that) and had to go on pain meds. I got atrophy from sitting too much and then went to another PT who was good and I was starting to get less pain and stronger but then he started speeding things up (said he had a quota to get a bonus). I pulled muscles in my back 3 times and finally tore something. I quit that PT and got more atrophy and can't cross my bad leg too well so I can't put socks or pants on now. I need help getting out of this mess. It is has been about 2 years now but funny things is I get low pain one and moderate or sometime high the next. I am currently doing accupunture, biofeedback and walking an hour and starting to do my third hill but still have pain. I am interested in infectious disease, immunology, hematology, as well as many other topics. I look forward to answering your questions and getting help too!
