Sigh - After being told that my TSH levels were high the T3 and T4 came back normal, so now I don't have to worry about hypothyrodism. Which coincidentally made a lot of sense for my symptoms.
It looks like I am ending up at the place I started. Upper and now possibly lower DDD. When my problems initially started it seemed to be triggered by an injury and a crazy chiropractor. 6months ago.
1.) Neurosurgeon looked at the xrays and said it was not causing my current issues.Yes I had alittle more the normal DDD but not the cause.
2.) 2 different pt, got slightly better but I think that had more to do with time then the PT. 2months.
3.) Developed lower back pain, rare spasms in left butt area, and once pain down me leg.
4.) Every doc that I have seen has said its all muscular.
5.) I get Buzzing, and formication (sensation of ants crawling) in hands and feet. MOst of this they attribute to "anxiety." SO now I have enough valium and anti depressants that I am thinking of quitting my job and supplying china.
6.) More frequent burning warm sensation in soles of feet and lower back mostly triggered by body position.
7.) Stiffness is the morning. Off and on. Difficulty getting comfortable in any given position.
8.) I got a Trigger Point Injection in my shoulder where I think the injury happened and it instantly released my neck. (I have limited motion turning to the left.
) This last person I saw is convinced that all my symptoms are 100% from DDD, upper and lower. SO he thinks the next step is epidural blocks. ????
SO my problem is that everyone I have seen is has been pretty sure what its and here I am six months later. I have tried pretty much everything. NOt sure I even remember what it is like not to be in pain. Frustrating part is not know what is causing all this and even more frustrating to be told oftent hat it is anxiety. "Just take it easy."
If any one has any insight, I would very much appreciate it.
