so its been a couple years since this has been updated so...
ive had several injection types and trips to pain magement and i can say i have new problems i even had a 2nd opinion
im 2 days from a MRI my last one was in 2017 and the PA i have seen offered alternitive medicine CBD oil or accupunture
she listend to me and my conserns and she orderd the MRI and a back brace for help she commented that i have a great relationship with my psychcririst
my pain level is between 6-10 when i have days i volenteer its worse but even at a high level i HAVE to keep going i have no option im too young to have this pain i JUST turned 27
the diffrence between this post and the last is i was seeing a NP and not a PA or the doctor the PA is conserned and said a MRI and seeing the neurosurgon wouldnt hurt because she think theres problems at a new level as i have what i had in my left leg i now have in my right leg i always keep in my mind that deep inside is a warrior that isnt afraid of anything because thats true
my current digsnosis is DDD and Spinal Stenosis
Hey everyone just a quick update....i have thoracic spine pain Now i saw a new Primary doctor who wants to help me out he asked he had all my MRI reports to him so he can help in any way he can
My Pain managemt team ordered a MRI for my Thoracic spine with Xrays im still keeping on
But how much more can i take? Its to the point a shower is more like a chore then somthing to just enjoy and laying down at night is painful because of my ribs being painful when i lay down
I am trying to keep faith and somtimes i feel like its not worth it But it truely is
so its been avary long time since i have updated this 12 days out from turning 28 i have been dealing with alot lately in summary
ive had a thoratic spine MRI and started injections again and they worked as they are going into the muscle and theyre rubbed out i have a set of doctors who want to work together dispite not being in eachothers network but my new pcp asked me to keep them in the loop as far as pain management and ive been through aquatherephy and its worked well so far so good our goal is to keep the pain at a stable level and preserve my spine
as always its a two steps foreward one step back but were dead set on staying away from surgery because of my age and the fact o have not had any serious complications id say i am doing well!
have a good low pain day people!
