Sorry you felt your wasting your time here. I know when your hurting you can feel alone and frustrated when no one answers. Please know this board is full of patients
just like you who live with the pain etc. However most of them for the more technical
aspects of this count on me to get the info out, since that research has been my passion. So please don't judge the community by not hearing the first day, this is an great place and if your read through the other post and health pages at the top right side of this forum you will find many answers already too, as well as see how far from
alone you are!
I can only go in here at night and we have dial-up. I checked the site last night but the boards were down for something they were working on. I answered you other post as soon as I got in here and saw it. I too am a patient with multiple issues, I was on the phone last night for sometime with another MSKer who had waited some time for a night when I could discuss the procedure MSK /pain etc. I also had another new patient that I needed to send articles too. With dial-up this literally takes me hours sometimes and I did not go to bed last night till 2am. Again, I apologize that you
are hurting and did not get an immediate response. Below is copy of the links
I sent in your other post on MSK and pain. If you can pm your e-mail address I will
send you the pdf of the procedure etc.
Be patient with me though, we run a home business, are raising kids and I am chronically ill. It may take a day or two but I will get it out there. I do not make any profit for the work and time I send helping others, other then the greatest reward of seeing people know they are not alone and have hope again!
This board is made up of people just like you. We don't have a medical doctor to sponsors us... though we would like one???? So this forum is just patients helping patients to find answers and hope. I hope you will become an active part of our board
and help us to insure that no newbie is left unanswered for very long! Cheryl also tries to jump in and at least say hi etc. as do a few others.. summer is a crazy busy time for people though.
I hope you find some answers in the links below

Here is the link to my favorite e-medicine article: The reason being read below: (How ever on checking to make sure I had the right one
I was surprised to find it edited, with separated sections: This is the lionk that states the remark below but I would encourage you to also
read the other links at the bottom of the section.)
Usually MSK is a benign disorder without any serious morbidity or mortality. However, renal insufficiency may occur in as many as 10% of patients with MSK.
Occasionally, patients can have recurrent nephrolithiasis, which can lead to significant morbidity.
If any suggestion of history of MSK in other family members exists, further investigations may be indicated to unravel the genetic pattern of transmission.
Some physicians may encounter patients with MSK who claim severe, chronic renal pain without any manifestation of infection, stones, or obstruction. The source of this pain is unclear. These patients may be treated best by physicians comfortable with chronic pain management.
I truly hope this helps you!
