My current conditions is pain in arms, legs, mid back, upper back, chest, low back, neck, headaches, tingling, burning, numbness, etc. Underwent C6-C7 ACDF in 2010 for a herniated disc with cord compression, that so far provided some relief to mainly right side of my body. Im still in severe pan 24/7 and hoping for more procedures, surgeries to help ease my pain and enable to function. I was rear ended in the car accident in '97 injured my low back, and i believe my neck and upper back. Soon after i went through very painful divorce and bankruptcy and did not get the proper diagnosis and treatment for my injuries at that time. What i suspect is my main problem are herniated discs in mid, upper, low back and neck. My thoracic MRI is "unremerkable", but there is obviously something wrong with several discs, vertebraes, and muscle atrophy in my chest.
My problem was trusting too much workers comp drs, and easy going nice guy that employer and MPN took full advantage off and spitted out the door and blackmailed when i could no longer show up for full day of work regardless of the narcotics that were prescribed. I was told that my condition is chronic pain, arthritis, " getting old", and even after MRI of my neck was done, that there is nothing serious and requiring surgery, but some arthritis and that i need to keep moving around. I had suffered tremendously in severe pain, trying to exercise out of Cervical Cord compression with myelopathy, herniated thoracic and lumbar disc with punctured Dura at T5-T6, C7-T1, T2-T3, and everywhere i went i heard the same story, nothing can be done "getting old, a little early but not unusual", till fired, unable to go back to work, insurance ran out while recovering from the neck surgery, still being lied to about my condition and trying to learn what can be done about returning to somewhat normal life.
