Let me start with letting you know that Im happy Im not alone... im glad i can share my situation with you all.
Im going to have a year having problems on my thighs.
I play basketball and ONE day... ONE DAY a year ago I jump to dunk and felt a little pain sensation on my left knee. on the outer part. Ok I stop playin for 3 weeks... I did the whole R.E.S.T. I still having that sensation on my leg. then i move from Dallas to MIAMI so i drove 23 hours. when I got to Miami the first thing I did was hoopin! the next day i have this pain on both legs..... thats was on August. I did not have insurance back then. I had to wait until January first to get insurance on my company. so form August to January 1st i had this pain on my thighs. I could not be sitting for more than 8 minutes because the outer middle and higher part of both thigh were in pain.. YEs i was trying to rest for like 2 weeks en then play basketball but the problems still. when i play basketball it hurts when Im about to jump or when im playing defense.
Ok I went to the Doctor. they said i had IT BAND . i wen to therapy for 12 seasons. they did deep massage, electro massage bla bla bla and NOTHING.... then by MAY 2013 getting worst, pain on my butt cheek, my hamstring, my IT band and then going down the shin and calf... at that point i was very worry.I change my doctor for one of the UM and he diagnose Piriformis syndrome.. he sent me to THERAPY AGAIN. I went to therapy and and the guy told that he will work on my spinal... he twist my back and that night i had back pain.. i went back to my UM doctor and i told him that i really wanna make sure about what was happening with me so i told him that i wanna do an MRI cuz he say something then the guy at the therapy center say something else.. no no I want the MRI. according to the Doctor i was fine and no issue with the nevers. i should be fine with therapy.. went back to therapy..... on therapy i was doing some piriformis stretch, some SQUADs..... after 3 weeks of 3 season per week i did not feel any better. ( i know it might take long time to recover but i was spending money and money. and if at least i feel a little better ok.. but not!
reading and reading i found out that acupuncture can be good to fix this problems.. when i went to the acupuncture center i show them the MRI results and they found THIS>>>> in MY FCAE and the UM FACE
"The MRI say the i have L4-5 Bulging Annulus which abuts the vertral thecal and L5-S1 right central disk herniation."
now up today i had 2 session and im still not feeling good... he told me that this might take 7 session due the disk issues.
i will keep you post.. i hope this post will have a happy ending.
this problems has completely change my life.... bless by God to have a life but concern about my situation. sometimes I read and read other experience and at night I stop praying for me and start praying for others! other that are in worst situation than me!
