Hi, I had a spinal injury 2 years ago. It was an anvulsion fracture in the lumbar spine. That’s what I was told when I went to the ER. But when I went to a specialist he said I was completely fine no injury whatsoever and shoed me out. Now it’s two years later, my lower back has not stopped hurting since. I can not bend over properly, my legs go numb, I get frequent headaches, and shooting pain in both legs when sitting. I got the injury from a horseback riding accident. I can’t even function properly at this point. There is not point in time when my lower back does not hurt really badly. I am at a loss. I went back to the er they said I have the same injury, asked why I didn’t go to the specialist, then sent me back to him again. And this time he didn’t even see me. He came out to the waiting room and told me I’m fine and go home. Now I don’t know what to do.

I am a 61-year-old female. I have some osteoporosis. I had a blocked bile duct and had an ERCP two weeks ago. Very painful stomach afterwards. Those pains have subsided. I still have a bile duct stent in for another month. Post-procedure I see that I am suffering from gradual onset mid-back pain after an eight-hour work day, and this pain is accompanied by breathlessness. My heart is fine. I m on a very low-fat diet because of two past occurrences of ideopathic acute pancreatitis complicated by sphincter of oddi disorder. I weigh 124 pounds at 5 3 . My back is weak and I sleep comfortably on an adjustable bed. I told the hospital to be careful with me, but the anesthetic knocks you out and they roll you into position. They really did a number on my spine. It s hard for me to breath with my spine hurting this way by the end of the day. Help!

Hi! My name is Angie and I m a 30 year old single mom of 3 kids. I was in a car accident about 6 years ago where I sprained my neck and my shoulder. While that injury is not terrible, the accident as well as events following have created a lot of problems for me. I was diagnosed with 2 bulging discs in my lower neck (I don t remember exactly where they are) and I went to a chiropractor for some relief. After that visit I ended up in the ER unable to twist or bend my neck/back and since then I have had chronic pain. I ve gone through physical therapy, done cold and heat therapy, etc.. Every time I talk to a doctor I hear the same thing You re too young to have this many problems. Um..I KNOW! I m tired of getting treated like a drug seeker, yes, I AM looking for pain medicine because I AM IN PAIN! No one will listen to me, no one will help me! It s not just my back s virtually all of my joints. My knees hurt so bad at times walking up and down my stairs in a problem, my lower back pain has caused me tremendous problems at work because I can t stand for long periods of time, and I m a waitress/chef, or I was, I just lost my job because of this. My fingers hurt, my wrists, my elbows in the morning..and my big toe. I have medicaid so I don t have many options when it comes to medical care and I can t find a doctor to listen to my concerns and help me without judging me. I m sick of this. I can t keep living this way! I m missing out on so much with my kids because I can t play with them the way that I should. My quality of life is terrible! Please help!
