Hi
I lifted a VERY heavy pot 2 and1/2 yrs ago.. 50 lbsof potatoes- plus it had 4- 2 quart sized pots of water added to it..It was super hot and heavy..I thought i could do it myself ...WRONG!!Anyway as soon as i got it off the stove i went to take a step and could'nt feel my feet.Then realized i was losing feeling in my arms.At this point i just kinda threw it down on the floor jerking my spine/neck/back pretty hard!!!
Every since that day-My life has not been the same...At first my neck/shoulders started burning .I started getting severe muscle spasms inm yneck/back..
As time went on my right hand started feeling weak and going numb.I later found out i had severe carpel tunnel and needed ulnar nerve transposition surgery done as well..THEN about 4 months after that surgery the left side of my neckright behind my ear going down into my collarbone area starts hurting like a deep throbbing..The docs tell me they have no idea..Maybe fibro..Then i see a few more docs..They say yeah -thats it-fibro..So i end up on pain meds and no real help ..Then about 10 months later-I had been back to work for about 1 year now..I start to feel this krazy pain radiate down into my shoulder/down my left arm and also into my jawline around the front of my ear...I am still having this krazy burning still as well-even though i take topamax-it helps to ease it a bit..but it never goes away...The only thing i have found out recently is that i have a bone spur on my left shoulder.Here is where i am stumped..I dont understand why i am burning all across my shoulders and in my neck for the last 2 and 1/2 years and i just had a nerve test and it showed up negative..What in the world could be making me burn if i dont have nerve damage???
Not one of the docs can tell me why the left side of my neck hurts so darn bad either..My whole left side is just trashed!!!
They are gonna tell me its fibro and i just need to learn to live with it..Well i am really tired..........
I just lost my job that iloved for the past 3 years-because the doc said not to overwork that left side-lets see whats going on..Well its been 3 weeks and all i know is that i have a bonespur...I told him i need to know about my neck-yet he ordered an mri and only said to check my arm!!!!!
I was so mad!!!So i called and told them about it..The receptionist said they have to take steps..I have spent $80.00 in office calls already...The next one i will be up to $100.00 and i bet i still wont know anything more....
I am thinking about calling them and just asking for my test results and asking what he plans on doing..I have absolutely no money left!!!!!!!!!!
My husband is throwing a fit over all these bills..I have to spend $120.00 just on meds per month...
I have been reading as much as i can to try and help myself-but i cant figure it out....I am so depressed i am getting to where i dont even want to get outta bed anymore..........
ANYONE-If you have any ideas -if you know someone -please lemme know.
Here is a list of my ailments
small herniations at C6-7 AND L5S1
foraminal narrowing on the left of the spine
arthritis
fibro
ideopathic neuropathy neck/shoulders/feet
neck pain on the left
shoulder/arm pain on the left
hysterectomy 3 years ago at the ripe ole age of 35..
taking hrt daily...

  • ALOHA! THIS IS HAWAIIANBOB HERE; I HAVE BEEN WITH CHRONIC PAIN FOR 33+YEARS, FAILED BACK SURGERIES,FUSIONS, SCIATIC NERVE DAMAGE, SEVERE SCAR TISSUE, SPINAL STENOSES, ETC. IT HAS BEEN A LIVING ***l FOR ME. THERE IS NO MED. FOR NERVE DAMAGE, EVEN MORPHINE CANNOT TAKE THE PAIN AWAY. I AM ON MY 2ND MORPHINE PUMP IN 8 YEARS. ONLY OUR LORD ***********t CAN SAVE PEOPLE WITH NERVE DAMAGE. NO ONE ON THIS PLANET CAN HELP CHRONIC NERVE PAIN. I AM SORRY TO TELL YOU THIS, BUT I HAVE BEEN THERE SINCE 1972 WHEN I GOT HURT. I WOLUD SUGGEST A VERY GOOD MRI. WHAT EVER YOU DO, DO NOT OPERATE IF YOU DO NOT NEED TO. I HAD TO, I WAS SCREAMING OUT OF MY HEAD, AFTER STRUGGLEING WITH IT FOR ALMOST A YEAR AND MANY DIFFERENT DRS. I WOULD RECOMMEND A MEDTRONIC PUMP. PUT IN DILLAUID AND BUPIVACAINE TO TRY TO MUNB ANY PAIN. ALSO HAVE ORAL MORPHINE PILLS FOR BREAK THROUGH PAIN. I TRIED TO KILL MYSELF TWICE BECAUSE OF MY CHRONIC PAIN. ALSO WATCH OUT FOR CONSTIPATION, DEPRESSION ETC. AFTER OVER 34 YEARS OF BACK SURGERY PROGRESS NO ONE IS GETTING OUT WITHOUT PAIN. ALSO NEVER LET THEM PUT RODS OR ANY OTHER DEVICES INTO YOUR BACK. THEY ALWAYS GIVE TROUBLE LATER ON AND HAVE TO BE REMOVED. THE BEST WEB PAGE IS AMERICAN PSIN FOUNDATION FOR NEWS. I WOULD SRONGLY START TO ASK OUR LORD AND SAVIOR ***********t TO HEAL YOU. HE IS THE ONLY ONE THAT CAN. HE HAS STARTED TO HEAL ME THIS LAST COUPLE OF MONTHS. MY SCIATIC BURNING PAIN IS GONE FROM MY LEFT LEG, PRAISE THE LORD ***********t. MY CHURCH CALVARY CHAPEL HAS BEEN PRAYING FOR ME FOR A LONG TIME. OUR LORD HAS HEARD THERE PRAYERS. ALSO YAU MIGHT WANT TO TAKE A LOOK AT THE WB. CALLED A LIGHT HOUSE . COM, IT IS ABOUT HEALING PRAYERS. I CAN TESTIFY TO THAT THESE PEOPLE WILL PRAY FOR YOU. I WILL ALSO PRAY FOR YOU RIGHT NOW FOR A MIRICLE HEALING. I HAVE HAD A MIRICLE DONE TO ME, PRAISE THE LORD. I KNOW WHAT CHRINIC PAIN IS ALL ABOUT, BELIEVE ME. MY EMAIL IS: boykoalley@yahoo.com if you would like to chat. Aloha! Hawaiianbob!:)

  • Hello Midnitestar: I am sorry to hear that you are having such a bad time getting help. I am not a healthcare professional so this is just a suggestion. Have you tried looking on the internet for the symptoms of RSD (Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy) also known as CRPS (Complex Regional Pain Syndrome)? Good luck in finding a cause for your pain. Once you find out what you have, you will be better able to treat it. Lil

  • My advice, and please take this seriously, is to find a chiropractor with whom you are comfortable. Don't let anymore allopathic doctors treat you with drugs and surgery.They don't have a clue what the problem is from what you have wrote and that could be simply due to their limited anatomy education. They are under the 'Prescribe drugs and operate" philosophy so they are quite limited.Instead of continuing to follow their 'treating of symptoms' disaster, perhaps you should see someone who will address the problem.Good luck to you.:) Hi I lifted a VERY heavy pot 2 and1/2 yrs ago.. 50 lbsof potatoes- plus it had 4- 2 quart sized pots of water added to it..It was super hot and heavy..I thought i could do it myself ...WRONG!!Anyway as soon as i got it off the stove i went to take a step and could'nt feel my feet.Then realized i was losing feeling in my arms.At this point i just kinda threw it down on the floor jerking my spine/neck/back pretty hard!!!Every since that day-My life has not been the same...At first my neck/shoulders started burning .I started getting severe muscle spasms inm yneck/back..As time went on my right hand started feeling weak and going numb.I later found out i had severe carpel tunnel and needed ulnar nerve transposition surgery done as well..THEN about 4 months after that surgery the left side of my neckright behind my ear going down into my collarbone area starts hurting like a deep throbbing..The docs tell me they have no idea..Maybe fibro..Then i see a few more docs..They say yeah -thats it-fibro..So i end up on pain meds and no real help ..Then about 10 months later-I had been back to work for about 1 year now..I start to feel this krazy pain radiate down into my shoulder/down my left arm and also into my jawline around the front of my ear...I am still having this krazy burning still as well-even though i take topamax-it helps to ease it a bit..but it never goes away...The only thing i have found out recently is that i have a bone spur on my left shoulder.Here is where i am stumped..I dont understand why i am burning all across my shoulders and in my neck for the last 2 and 1/2 years and i just had a nerve test and it showed up negative..What in the world could be making me burn if i dont have nerve damage???Not one of the docs can tell me why the left side of my neck hurts so darn bad either..My whole left side is just trashed!!!They are gonna tell me its fibro and i just need to learn to live with it..Well i am really tired..........I just lost my job that iloved for the past 3 years-because the doc said not to overwork that left side-lets see whats going on..Well its been 3 weeks and all i know is that i have a bonespur...I told him i need to know about my neck-yet he ordered an mri and only said to check my arm!!!!!I was so mad!!!So i called and told them about it..The receptionist said they have to take steps..I have spent $80.00 in office calls already...The next one i will be up to $100.00 and i bet i still wont know anything more....I am thinking about calling them and just asking for my test results and asking what he plans on doing..I have absolutely no money left!!!!!!!!!!My husband is throwing a fit over all these bills..I have to spend $120.00 just on meds per month...I have been reading as much as i can to try and help myself-but i cant figure it out....I am so depressed i am getting to where i dont even want to get outta bed anymore..........ANYONE-If you have any ideas -if you know someone -please lemme know.Here is a list of my ailmentssmall herniations at C6-7 AND L5S1foraminal narrowing on the left of the spinearthritis fibroideopathic neuropathy neck/shoulders/feetneck pain on the leftshoulder/arm pain on the lefthysterectomy 3 years ago at the ripe ole age of 35..taking hrt daily...

  • I feel so sorry for you! I also have some nerve damage and my left thigh burns like fire.I can only strongly suggest you go to a chiropractor also. I think you will get some relief. I've found regular doctors don't seem to know anything about nerves. I'm going to go back to a chiropractor now myself. I haven't needed one for years but my spine is messed up again and pressing on nerves that go down my legs and it is causing this new pain.

  • my Dad got negative results back on one of those tests and his right leg juststays on fire so now he is going to pain management they put him on klonipinand it relieved about 70% of his pain but now they have changed it to cymbala and he will get the full dosage in 3 weeks they build it up in your system 1 week at a time I can't stand to see him suffer like this !!!!

My pain doctor saved my life! After 2 visits he found I had a torn rotator cuff that I’ve been walking around with for 20+ years and now have RSD. I have suffered all these years with so many doctors and NO answers. I personally don’t trust Chiropractors due to their limited education and would rather deal with a MD.
