im only 35 and have been tryin for disability for 2 years for back pain ~X( i have been traveling to barnes jewish hospital for 1 year now in hope for help. the whole spine starting at T8 is messed up! every disc is at least bulging. the T12 has a large herniation and at L5-S1 i have a tumor.also have multilevels of DDD deformation of spine (back sinks in alot)and a few other thing to. funny part is that test was when taken i wasnt as bad as i am now! the pain is awful!feels like a crackling in my low back when i stand up.i have doctors and people look at me in amazment because im still walking but i do have i very high tolerance for pain but last few months have taken their toll on me Sad
pain in kidney area,low back,hips,thighs,legs (which cramp up like a charlie horse but my whole leg does it!)also pain in toes and top of foot.walking is getting harder everyday Sadly i just got my "pimped" out walker 2day.although im dreading using it since im so stubborn it is a nice one
i went with the breast cancer awareness styled one.pink/black with ribbon. has basket,seat and handles even has brakes.doctor wants me using it because my legs muscles are starting to give out on me.standing hurts,sitting hurts and even laying hurts not even sure what type of surgery they do for these problems but im ready 4 it!!!!
