hi im a 22 year old living with a 70 year old back disease. my spinal cord is 3 times smaller then that of an adverage person. my doctor told me its usualy only common to find it in 70 year old's but i was a rare case. the only help he could give me with the pain was to loose weight and the pain would dull down. well i have lost over 200lbs and still every day i have to have my roomate help me to bed because the pain is unbearable. i was bed riden for 3 months and had to go through extensive theropy and i finaly could walk agan. but i am wondering what this condition is and if there is a way to get the pain to subside enough for me to go about my day. i have tried the strongest arthirtis pills,robaxacet,advil,tylenil 3,and many more.. is there anything i can do?

  • Yes, there is. Please find an acupuncturist and try to see them twice a week for at least a month. This will help considerably and is a much better choice than toxic pain meds which only mask the pain. To find one near you please visit www.acufinder.com and type in your zip code. There are also teaching schools around the world who accept patients at a reduced rate. Please try this - you have nothing to lose and everything to gain!Best of luckDOM

  • I agree. I have had acupuncture & I think that it is the best therapy for back problems. It sure beats doing the pain medicine.
