Misalignment (by )

Yesturday saw me back at the Dr - he had gotten half way through my notes from Chelsea and Westmister which have been tracked down - yay! Last time this was all be looked at the notes where missing!

Anyway the clicking and back have shown a major deteriation since it was last looked at and he examined all my reflexes again and looked at my neck.

Apparently I have vertebra that are obviously misaligned which needs looking at and maybe causing alot of the back pain. There are other issues too but it is all complex and mashed up together so I am being refered to a specialist and there may have to be an operation.

When it was last looked at outside of pain management was just after the birth when I was still on the crutches and it was desided it was too much for me to cope with. It also turns out that if you are being treated by the pain management team you can't be refered to else where.

So the Dr gave me the option of pain management or the specialist. I said I wanted a definate answer to what it is as it has been getting worse.

He said he agreed and that is the course he suggested but how did I feel about the possibility of an op and stuff. At the end of the day I'm having to look at the long term here - stuff wasn't done whilst I was at Uni cos it would interfer with studies and then not done becuase of Jean but if that carries on I wont be able to do anything anyway.

And so I am back to waiting and have another perscription etc... he said he'd also look into other pain meds for me.

I am trying not to be too optermistic that stuff will get sorted as thats what leads to the crushing hopelessness.

At the moment it appears that there is some chronic under laying condition that means that my body reacts badly to injury and of course stress. Its also going to take a while to sort out but things could not keep going the way they were - when I think on it I'm amazed I didn't collapse sooner.

I am having a flare up/set back as far as the back is concerned at the moment anyway but I'm back to dropping pans and the like which is always upsetting.

    Try auricular acupuncture to stimulate self-healing, and definately pain reduction. Look up Dr. Paul Nogier. Electro-acupens are available on net. I got mine at Lidl! It is scientific, not quack. Hi to Alaric. not seen you since you were kid!
