Hi I have pain that runs up my neck to top of my head and pain like a knife just below my shoulder blades on the right side that goes around to my ribs where it's like a knife stabbed in me. Also my lower back hurts on the right side going around to my stomach. My left inner foot is also numb. I n all these areas there is also shooting pain. I've been like this for a year now and not getting better. R ight now the pain and cramps are getting worse from typing this. Also I go through cycles where for about two weeks the symptoms will decrease then gradually start to get worse to the point of not being able to lay down in any position and leaning back in a chair becomes painfull. This intence pain can last up to two months. I will get from two to four hours sleep during this time which I wake up off and on then I just give up on sleeping and stay up. I have had mri's that showed nothing. Xrays that showed pinched nerves acording to my chiropractor but showed nothing acording to my md. I had a nerve damage test that shows misfiring nerve in my upper back. I have taken vicoden then had to switch to darvacet 100 because i built up a tolerance to the vicoden. They only make the pain more tolerable. I told the md that they didn't work that well so he increased the darvacet to 120 a month with 90 flexerill a month and 90 elavill a month. I tried going back to work but after 35 minutes the pain was so bad I just couldn't take it. I tried keybording but after an hour of it my back is in cramps and lots of pain. So now I'm stuck on long term disability. If anyone has any thoughts on how to help fix me I would be glad to hear them.
