I went through a year of physio, about 3x a week at some points. i was having major muscle spasms and my ribs were 'overlapping', i was also told i would shift my vertebrae and need to get them put back and my shoulder would feel like it was falling out of the socket, so i had it tapped back into place.(by taping my skin and pulling hard on it it would keep my muscles where they needed to be and in turn- my bones) they said I have TOS and 'some bodies are just built wrong"!... I didn't believe them after a year of not getting any better and at one point getting drastically worse & decided I needed answers.. so i got a second opinion with a chiropractor here. Turns out I have Kyphosis of the Cervical Spine. It gets good then it gets bad, then good, then worse.
I`ve lost two jobs to it now. I can`t sit for long periods, i cant stand in one place for long periods; i have to move around but i can`t move around too much... its becoming so difficult to find a job!
I just lost my second one.
I was wondering if anyone out there that has any advice?
I'm only 24years old. i feel like i'm loosing the ability to work, this is so stupid! I didnt even have an accident, fall, or anything. And i drank plenty of milk as a kid (2lt a day!)
I read online that there is usually a cause from it. I had no accident, I had no sign this was happening. My neck would randomly seize up for a three day period once every 6months for about 3yrs then it just got a little worse and worse. Should i be worried that something was over looked? I read online there are numerous different reasoning's for kyphosis to happen.
and when is it 'really bad'? i read that there isn't much for symptoms and people usually go unnoticed until an xray shows it or a hunch is noticed. Ive been in pain for 3+ years.... just want it to stop.
In the past week its gone from my neck to my mid & lower back. I had a labor job (i try anything till my body says no, i'll never give up) and ended up in intesnse pain! i left work to go to the hospital for pain meds and I guess i hurt my t7. All the doc did was poke my spine with his finger then wright me a perscription. Now my right foot and right hand tingle.
whats going on? is this normal.
looking forward to answers, i JUST found this site!
