Like everyone else, I found this site while searching for a cure for my neck,back-upper/lower and now foot pain. I am 36yrs old male, married with a kid. I have been having back ache for over 18yrs, 24/7 of late roughly about 9 yrs I have developed sever neck pains (unable to move to the sides) and now my feet(bottom) of late(2yrs) have been killing me, sometimes I feel like I am falling apart, as all these pains are 24/7 every second of my life with me. I get really cranky due to my pains, when I tense up, my neck and back start to really kill me.
I tried Chiropractic in the US for about 4months, honestly I felt like a billion bucks and had to stop as I was moving to Canada, here is Canada I tried Decompression ( paid 3k out of pocket for a dozen sessions) with no relief insight. I went a Chiro. after a couple of weeks she mentioned I see a Accupuncturist, I did, for a 10-12 more sessions I had a some improvement nothing great, my feet during this time started to ache like hell, so I got customs fit orthotics ( till today does nothing)
I saw a back specialist, they recommended I have few more sessions of Chiro. so I switched Chiro as I felt the lady chiro wasn't strong enough to adjust me all the way, so half way was even worse as I strong felt like wanting someone to jump on my back to crack me up. I visited the new Chiropracter for a dozen visits the guy is good, but agan didn't feel I was getting anywhere, I moved to deep tissue masages, honestly when the lady pressed certain point in my neck and back I couldn't breath and I literally mean couldn't breath, it felt like blood circulation was cut off and I would pass off any minute, I really like the deep tissue but it would stretch me up and make me feel better for 20-30 minutes and I am rght back to square one.
I went to my family doctore several times mentoning my aches and quite frankly on the outside I look like a health person but I am just falling to peaces. She sent my for a MRI, during the process I came to know that it was only for my neck, disappointed it wasn't including my back I went ahead and got t done, reports came back and she said everything is fine( HOW THE HELL ON EARTH IS THAT POSSIBLE) I suffer every freaken second with pain and the report says nothing...this MRI was done few months ago-6-7mnths. I am not schedule for a back MRI as I visted my famly doctor last week complaning of numbness in both the bottom front of my feet.
I am not sure if this all is contributed to the fact I fell 4storeys when I was in my preteens ( landed right on my feet with no scratch or bruise, I just started walking right away like nothing every happened) I didn't fall on butt or side I just fell and stood straght.
Also, when I sit and lean forward and try taking a deep breath, it HURTS and I am breakless. feels like someone is squeezing something on the insides of my on the left side.
That being said, does anyone suffer with my similar misfortunes as far as pain goes?
P.S It is very difficult for me to pin poin the exact place of my pain in my back and neck, however I noticed when I got the deep tissue massage done, I could. I am not sure if I suffer from a sever case of muscle inflamation. Also, I forgot to mention, when at one point when a physiotherapst did some sort of a plastering( she used a big stick plaster for my left middle back and pulled it towards the upper and stuck it- it felt good. but as soon as she took it off the pain came back.
Thank you for taking the time to read my post. I am starting to get really worried as I am only 36.
Pain something never to have and wish upon someone else.
