Since my rear end collision my balance has been real off. Matter of fact is caused my latest spill. I lost my balance, not that I really had it in the first place, but fell down our stairs. I didn't land on my back but my elbows were banged up and I hit my head. Almost 2 weeks later and lump on my head is still there and quite tender. Where I am gett...

I was in a legal battle for 3 years and just recently got back custody of my youngest son. I have lived in CP for just over 6 years and yes I am on meds. Last summer I took my son to see a family therapist and after he went back to his father I continued to see her off an on. She doesn't specialize in pain anything, like I said she is only a family thera...

Have you ever had this pain before? Would be my first question. If yes, and with your young age, you may have developed arthritis in the joint of your shoulder and or may be experience some impingement. It results from pressure on the rotator cuff from part of the shoulder blade (scapula) as the arm is lifted as well as lowered. I would recommend making a doc...

Hey Martin I hope this note finds you in less pain and good spirits. I just got back from visiting my mother and we talked a lot of my pain issues and what the future may hold for me as far as pain management and so on. On my drive home I thought of you.

I too am on Gabapentin. I take 600MG 3 times a day and it has helped me with nerve pain. I was only getting the injections until I was rear ended and now my L4 to S1 is now herniated with a tear at S1 with disc protrusion. That is why they put me on Gabapentin. I have been doing the injections for a few years now and with a good doctor the injections will las...

I would get a second opinion from a Spine Surgical Specialist. I was rear ended recently and I too have herniated disc fro L4 to S1 with a tear and disc protrusion at S1. I have a long history with cervical and lumbar issues. 6 weeks prior to getting rear ended I under went an Cervical Eclipse Fusion. One Doctor in the world does this procedure. I went to le...

Being in a rear end car accident and feeling fine is normal. However, your body experienced trauma. Damage or injuries can show symptoms right away and for others years later. As we get older trauma in our early years will start to be symptomatic. Have you ever been diagnosed or told that you may have Cervical disc degeneration? A fall or a twisting injury to...

I am so sorry to hear that you are in so much pain. It's not abnormal to get up the wrong way and strain or pull muscles that we use everyday. You were correct by going to the Hospital to seek treatment after 3 days of pain. Unfortunately, when you go to the hospital the Er Doctors main jobs are to Stabilize and treat and release. In your case, my person...
