  • I am new to this forum..and I just want to know if anyone on here has any success at alleviating their pain. I have been experiencing a burning pain in my lower back and groin for three mponths now..out of work and in danger of losing my 22 year job..is there a light at the end of thius tunnel?
  • You and I had surgery at about the same time. We should get together and compare notes. :) I am still having issues. I've had severe shoulder pain since surgery that never went away. I have taken every muscle relaxer and still nothing. I decided to go to a new Ortho after mine suggested that all I needed was counselling. :? Well it turns out my new Ortho has a much better plan. I am currently doing myofascial release therapy for the shoulder pain and it is really working well. I had to have an ESI injection just yesterday though because my first Ortho did not believe my pain was coming from my neck. Second Ortho completely disagrees and even has the X Rays and MRI to prove his diagnosis. So he wanted to use the ESI as the deciding factor about whether or not the next level up needs to be fused. Since my injection yesterday I have had no neck pain at all and the zinger I used to get from my neck down to my hand is gone so it looks like Doctor #2 was right on. Oh I did however see a counsellor but not because of my neck pain but rather the PTSD I've suffered since being ran over by a semi.
