... I would just be really, really careful if you go. I went to one for over year, since I had no ins and he was willing to see me without. When I finally got ins, turns out he did make my back and leg pain worse. I have Thoraric spine problems and he was giving me lumbar exercises to do, which made my upper back worse. Pain wise it did help, but really only for a day or 2. ... (7 replies)
... Sorry to hear that you're not sleeping. I'm going through that myself and with a job, you're right, it's just a total nightmare! I've been using over the counter sleeping pills, which I know it's great over an extended period of time, but at this point I'm out of ideas! Have you tried those or like some of the others suggested, ask your dr for an RX for something that will... (10 replies)
... Hi, sorry to hear about your pain. I am 25 and just found out that I have mild Scoliosis. It was somehow missed when I was a child (which is a mystery because I was always checked!) I have terrible muscle spasms all day long because of my curves! I didn't have insurance for over a year, so I'm just now getting treatment for it. I know with being a student it's hard to...

... I don't know anyone in Ohio, but I did see a chiropractor for almost an entire year without health insurance! I would suggest calling around and see what happens. I know most chiropractors usually give a free consulation. You can go for the free consulation and see what happens. Mine let me keep coming and paying $20 a visit. Just a word of caution though and I'm not... (3 replies)
... Hey Sioux-z-q!! Thanks for thinking of me :) PT is going great so far, but I have more problems than I realized. LOL My right hip and leg is pointing ******ds for some reason and my left leg and hip is pointing inwards. PT thinks this is causing all my back pain and leg pain as well. My spine is in an "S" shape. Most of my exercises are for my hips and we're hoping... (2 replies)
Update on back
Sep 30, 2003
... Hey, now that is strange, we were born just 3 days apart :) My birthday is April 13th! How neat is that?! I'm glad to hear that you're feeling better but please be careful and don't over do it! I over did it this past weekend since I felt "ok" and went out for a long lunch and then some shopping. I know it doesn't sound like much, but by the time I got home I was ready... (4 replies)
Update on back
Sep 30, 2003
... Hey Sioux-z-q! I'm feeling much better thank you. Right now I'm on Prednesone for my bronchitis and it's making my back feel sooo good! I almost feel "normal" again :) I'm only on it for 2 more days though, so I have to enjoy it while I can really. I start PT tomorrow, so I'm hoping it all goes well and I can get some relief. I've actually been with my highschool... (4 replies)
... I'm sorry about what you're going through, but thank you for posting that! It sounds just like what I have, including the mild curve in the T-spine that was just found at age 25! I start PT on Weds morning and am hoping that helps. I hope you get some relief from your as well. Can I ask you did your ortho spot this on tendinitis on an x-ray? I'm just curious because...

... Flexeril has never done a thing for me, other than to make me really sleepy. I never thought it even touched the spasms. I'm currently on Skelaxin, which works a bit, but doesn't really seem to knock them out. I've found Valium is really the best, but my dr warned me if you take too much of it your back has a rebound effect from it or something like that. ... (7 replies)
Need advice
Sep 21, 2003
... Well, I think I may be ok even if I have an EMG because I didn't start having leg pain until about one month before insurance kicked in. It was always in my back and then something happened and made the back pain get 100x worse and then the leg pain. I guess I'll just have to wait and see what happens. The worst they can do is make me wait until next June 1st and hopefully... (10 replies)
... Hello, I'm down in Tucson :) Sorry about your neck. I would probably start at maybe your primary care dr and see what he/she suggests? Mostly likely they will refer you out to who they think can best help you. Also, have you tried seeing a chiropractor? I'm not sure if they can help with arthritis in the cervical spine or not, but I know they can help with arthritis in... (2 replies)

... Linda, Oh my gosh I can't believe all that you have been through! It must be so frustrating not to know exactly what is wrong and having to endure all those tortureograms, opps I mean discograms! Hopefully you can find a dr that can tell you exactly what is wrong and they can try something that will work. 4 years is a long time to suffer without an answer! I am going... (10 replies)
... Hi Jim ~ I recently had x-rays come back as normal too, so I asked my chiro what they rule out. He basically said fractures or anything broken and then what Oakleygirl said regarding narrowing of spaces between the discs and so forth. My dr said they can sometimes miss bone spurs though, depending on where they are located. If you're still having pain after your PT... (2 replies)

... Thanks for replying. I did suffer for so long from lack of insurance, it's a terrible thing not to have it! Though, in the past month or so thing have gotten much worse. I use to be able to sleep ok and at least get some relief from laying on my side and watching tv or whatever. Not anymore! This was only my 2nd visit to my primary care dr about my back, so that is why... (10 replies)
Weight...
Sep 19, 2003
... First of all, I'm sorry to hear about all of this!! This is a touchy subject with me because I use to be quite heavy myself. I didn't start having back problems until I lost about 60 lbs (not sure how much that is in KGs, sorry!) I've managed to lose another 20 lbs, but I'm still overweight. I'm sure it is making my back worse, but I don't understand how I didn't have any... (7 replies)
Upper back issues
Sep 19, 2003
... I have upper to mid back pain and spasms, right where my Thoratic spine starts. Going to a chiropractor has helped me a lot!! It's made my pain much more manageable, especially because I didn't have insurance for awhile, so couldn't go a "regular" dr if you will. My chiro was nice enough to let me pay $20 per visit. I would say it's worth a try to see if you notice any... (1 replies)
... Well, back in 2000 I weighed 245 lbs and I'm a 5'4" woman. I never had a back problem at all when I was that heavy. Mine started as I was dieting and exercising every day, I was about 180 or so when this started. Now I'm at 165, which is still over weight, but at this point the weight is NOT going to come off until my back is "fixed". I'm like you, I stand all the time... (11 replies)
Getting scared!
Sep 15, 2003
... Hi, thanks for replying! I'm sorry about your problems as well. Hopefully your surgery will be a success and you'll be pain free soon :) I actually forgot to include my signature in my post, but I DO have insurance now. However, this whole thing started back in March of 2002. I just got insurance and left a job I really liked in order to do so, to take care of my back. ... (4 replies)
... Not to scare you, but be very careful with your feet since you are on them all the time. I just found out I have tendinitis in both my feet from standing for so many hours a day on a hard surface. Now I can't sit or stand for more than 20 mins at a time or so. ... (1 replies)
... imes i feel it on the outside of my calf. This will happen for maybe a day then the pain starts. I can feel it in the middle of my butt cheeks and sometimes on both sides. The past two days I have pain running down the backs of both my legs,calfs, in my hip and my ankles. If almost feels like a pulled muscle. ... (11 replies)
