thers 100s of us out there. Doctors constantly misdiagnose us cause they dont know what it is as nothing shors up on any tests. After 2yrs fighting this monster from pain level 9 (dr gave me morphine to now pain level 3, Im close to winning my battle of my life. You have a structural problem that no mris can show. I need to know how old you are, where you live, male, female, need to know any trraumatic skelatal problem youve had going back EVEN to when you were a child. From falling on youre butt, to straining your back, knee, shoulder, arthritis. anything muscular, skelatal or ligaments anywhere on youre body.. There is hope, ive helped several people. were not all 100%, but we dont want to kill ourselvves anymore as our lives have ceased to exist with this incridble painful condition.Most of us have seen from 6-12 drs. I think I can give you some guidance on where to start after some medical history. Right now do NOT BEND, go to knees first then pick u from floor. No vacuming. Swimming, PT, drugs nothing works. The drs only treat your symptoms and dont look at the whole picture. and do whatever you must to SLEEP!!! this relaxes youre muscles as there contracting to help stabilize youre joints. I know how painful it is to seep now especially on your side but do what you must. I took Nytols at 7:00pm so I caould fall asleep by 11:00. Also is youre pain worse in am or pm? It should be the worst in PM.? any slipped discs also?
