Thought I'd look around on the internet and find a forum for back pain, and that brought me here!
The name's Kevin and I'm 19 and a student at the Univ. of Arizona.
In Jan, I was rear-ended by an SUV at a complete stop on my motorcycle.
As a result, I suffered a "mild" Compression fracture at T4.
Was on Percocet, Diazepam.
Currently taking Tylenol, Advil, and when its really unbearable, either vicodin or tylenol w/codeine.
Have had x-rays, CT scans, MRIs and they've all said that it was an "age-indeterminate" comp. fracture...?
Have had ~4months of Physical therapy on and off and no major improvement.
its now 10months out and I'm still having mid-back pain as well as low back pain.
Also dealing with mental health and trying to get back to a happier/better place.
Right now, my doc has no idea why, but says maybe due to scar tissue build-up or because of bad sitting posture.
Has referred me out to a physical rehabilitation specialist for a second opinion or to see if they can offer a different perspective.
So that's me!
Hope to talk to the community and meet all of you!
