O.K. I am 25 years old, I have had horrible neck pain for 6 years now and some lower back pain that is not as bad as the neck pain for about 6 years also. I have had about 4 MRI's taken of my neck and one of my head. The doctors say that there is nothing wrong yet my neck which makes very loud popping and cracking noises when I turn it and I feel electrical shocks sometimes if i turn it too far. I tried to be reasonable and asked the doc "is it suppose to sound like that??"" I don't hear other people's necks from across the room when they turn thier heads??" The doc instisted I was somehow making my neck make the noise. This *****d me off and made me wish that the doc and all of his decendants could feel what I go through every day. Well, I decided I would handle it myself and I didn't need the doc anyways. That was until my fingers tips went completely numb and my toes. I can't feel any sensation at all. Now that my fingers and toes are numb my doctor is like SO.... are you taking your anti-depressants?? ***k. A few weeks later, I come in contact with someone who has come in contact with MRSA. I thought I had caught it because I get these "things" that ooze clear liqid on my face (actually the very first one was on my neck) and this only started about 10 months ago after I met the person who caught MRSA, this never happened in my life before that. The doc told me, no, no, no you have impetigo and he gave me some cream. The thing went away and then it came back and I told him, "Why the ***l am I the only one who gets impetigo???? I shower I know people who don't and they don't get it!!" Next he says, "You have a staph infection." Ok keep the compliments coming doc 3 separate anti-biotic treatments later he never bothers to check if I got rid of the infection if I even had one. Well I guess not because it's back and he is like I want to test you for herpes. I was like Uhhhh.... I haven't even kissed anyone in over a year doc. He was like Oh no I mean the kind that causes cold sores. I was like OK whatever. I go to the nurse to get my blood drawn and she says pssst.... don't worry 98 percent of people have herpes bacteria....if you have ever had chicken pox you will test positive. So I was like. "98 percent?? I don't see this happening to 98 percent of people. Is this just his way of getting out of figureing out what I really have?? If I test positive he is just going to go YUP that's it bye!" She whispered ...pretty much. I was *****d since I know I have had chicken pox like 3 times when I was about 4 years old. Stupid, lazy doc. This is like beating a dead horse. I wonder is he on salary? Should I just accept that I am ageing? I am 25 years old and my grandmother can do more then I can. My eyes seem to be very sensitive to bright light now and sometimes they jiggle when I look directly at a light but I think that is a reflex like my eyes are trying to get away from the light and I am forcing them to look. I often find myself with what I call the captian hook pirate eye look (sometimes I also call this the popeye stare down when I notice all of the sudden that I am closing one eye so it looks as if I am winking at everyone for no reason. I hope people don't think I am a pervert. It is a reflex kind of like blinking, I do it subconciously but just like blinking if I notice myself doing it I can make myself stop but normally when I am not paying attention I will find myself doing it again. I am so sick of this, I was a very active person and now for me to go out I have to figure out how long the activity will be to see if it is worth the amount of neck pain I will suffer. I wish my neck would just go numb like my fingers and toes, I don't know if I am dieing but honestly I rather would then live the rest of my life like this....Watching the 90 year olds go out and play golf or go for walks.....I envy them... I bet my condition will be a lot worse when I am half thier age then it is now. I can't live the rest of my life knowing that it will only get worse and it is already to the point where I can't enjoy anything. All my goals, my future, it's gone all I can do is lay in bed. What is the point? As long as no one beleives me I will never get help. Thanks people.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
