Hello, I am new here, I had rods put in my back for scoliosis and kyphosis anterior and posterior in 1996. September 2007 I started having very bad leg pain (bilateral) and had many tests taken to find out where it was coming from, MRI Mylogram, EMG, even a ct on my brain to see if it was MS. The pain was so bad that I lost my 2 jobs, and my husband.............he was a jerk and said he did not want to be a "house wife", I also have a 3year old son full-time and I eventually moved home March 2008, so my parents could help me with my son. With all of the above tests and pain treatment I have tried..........Epideral, Tens Unit, tons of physical therapy, accupuncture, massage, Lyrica, Amitriplynne, Vicodin...........you name it..........I eneded up with 30,000 in medical bills............and I have insurance.
So............to make a long story shorter.....I started seeing a chiropractor 3 times a week, and I take advil all day long and Suboxone for pain, because I got addicted to Vicodin, and it no longer gave me releif. The pain was managable for about 10 months......but now it is coming back full force again, and I am so scared since I have seen about 3 neuro's and 4 spine doctors, 3 pain management dr's........and no one can give me a diagnosis other than mechanicle problems.
I am now living in CO (fort Collins) and need to find a good doctor here............can anyone give me any ideas or advice? I am 30 years old and a single mom, and I am so scarred I am going to have to live like this forever.
