This is my first time in this chat room. I have been dealing with a thorqsic injury for the past 5 years. I had a traumatic hyperflexion injury which herniated my t6 disc and created compression fx. then 1 month ago i was involved in a motorcycle injury in which i broke 7 ribs, my clavicle and completely ruptured the t6 dics on the right side. the pain and discomfort has returned with such an intensity that is brutally painful. has anyone suffered this kind of injury and had anything done about it., Please help


  • Hi Johnny,

    It sounds as if you've really been in the wars recntly and frankly, your injuries sound quite appalling!

    I was wondering whether you've seen a specialist or a spinal neurosurgeon and had all the relevant tests carried out on you (including an MRIj. If not, perhaps this would be the next step, to at least fully investigate your condition. If you're past that step (and how else would you know which discs are herniated?!) I hope you've been prescribed adequate pain relief, but why not ask your specialist to increase that, pro tem.

    It does sound really awful for you at the moment, but don't worry. You've reached the right place in coming to this site and although I've never had anything like the damage you've obviously incurred, guaranteed someone else will be able to advise you properly!

    Good luck.
