what is a physiatrist?
i don't mean psychiatrist. if i spelled it wrong -physiatrist. i've been waiting for eight months to find out what is wrong with my body since i was hit by a car crossing the street. one doctor has been caring and wonderful and trying to find me help. trying is the word i never knew would happen.

all other doctors have been cold and uninterested no matter how much my symtoms progress. at this point my left leg is two inches longer than right. right hip is higher than left. both hips are no longer in striaght line. hump in left side of back. the back has changed physically. all this happening slowly over post- accident

neurologist can't help. ortho's won't help. so i am told i am left with a physiatrist. will they look over your body and give one a diagnosis.

trying to get into stanford for second time. first time denied by neuro because they felt they couldn't help me.

i'm in oakland ca. i will go anywhere. anyplace if someone knows...
