Just about all ya'll know my history and stories. Pain in the thoracic spine that no one wants to touch. Since the last post I have seen 2 more surgeons that panned out to nothing. Their diagnosis was arthritis and disc degeneration causing all the pain and nothing can be done to help me.
What I don't understand is how can a normal healthy 36 year old male not be able to stand up right after a short period of time walking around. How can I be in so much pain doing laundry. 24 hours of thoracic pain and it's due to disc degeneration and arthritis?
So that means this is all just going to get worse every year. So I figure by the time I hit 40 I will be in so much pain and won't be able to do anything because as the docs say, there is nothing that can be done. What kind of life is that?? To know each year you lose more of your functions. I am sorry but this is stupid. All of the technology out there and the amazing things they can do but thoracic pain they can't do anything.
I've been having another issue that I don't know who to reach out to. I continue to have nonstop spasms in my legs. It's really bad at work because I hit my desk every time. Sometimes my right arm will do it but more in my legs. This isn't something I've always had but over the last month it is getting worse. It's so embarrassing to continue to have this happen. What's really bad is when my right arm does it I always have something in my hand. At work I don't know how many times I've almost lost my mouse. I've chucked my phone a few times.
I don't even know what could be causing these involuntary jerks. I thought maybe because of my spinal cord stimulator but I'm not sure. I have a pump refill appointment in 2 weeks so I'll ask them. I already know they will say they aren't sure go see so and so.
Has anyone ever had this happen before? Did it get resolved?
On top of the uncontrollable jerks I have had a charly horse feeling in my right calf. I've been stretching, using heat/ice and massage and it won't go away. I have had it for 2 weeks now. What my wife read is it can be due to issues in my spine.
I hate this, I hate it all!!! Sick of wasting my time seeing doc after doc to hear they can't do anything. To then go back to the drawing board looking for another doc. Pointless.
