About 3 years ago I fell and thought I broke my tail bone. I was out of work for 2 months. Could not sit for long on a seat cushion. Had a little back sympotms before fall. From then on after fall, I had a steriod shot or cortizone shot in my back that help dull the pain. Afterwards and some discomfort in my lower back and my neck. I started seeing a Chiropractor for my symptoms. I didn't want to get another shot for my back because it wasn't servere enough for that. This past Jan. '06, I got a cold and was put on a strong antibiotics for my sympotms. At the same time my back started hurting even more and my back begun to swell . I was out of work for the whole month of January. After starting back to work i started seeing a chiropractor that does accupucture. That seemed to help move the energy around and help in the healing of the swelling and pain of my back. I also changed my diet to organic, gluten free products as much as possible. Also trying not to take hot showers for very long to inflame my back to make it begin to swell. The swelling and some pain still lingers, concerned about the swelling.
