  • You can match wits on thorasic issues with your doctor ? You diagnose yourself and send yourself for tests,
    You have lost your mind !

    All this time I knew you were crazy, But it's clear now you are insane ! There is a condition of absession with medical conditions, It's a form of hypochondriac condition , You might have heard of it already from your doctors,

    It's associated with depression, It can be treated I think, And this is in no way to be rude I assure you,
    I read many of your posts and concerns and am aware of doctors you seen and statements of what if you have surgery in the future and so on, To have such serious concerns over medical symptoms and consumed by them without anything showing any cause that's serious enough to do something about with either surgery or medication and identifying every symptom a person has to some serious medical condition either to spine or neurological condition can very well be a depression or as I said a obsession with medical illnesses ,= Hypochondriac

    I say this with the up most respect as a Spine health member of 4 years !

    You were refered to John Hopkins I believe you said in a recent post but you rejected it due to you said why bother they won't find nothing wrong with you anyways, Your words not mine !
    Such statement raises serious concern to me as a Spine Health member !

    Spine Health can only help people who are willing to help themself and members are here to suport each and every person in the process ,
    If a person is serious enough about wanting to find out what is causing there pain condition when local doctors find nothing they go just about anywhere in the world to get a total work up and rule out every cause posible to get the proper treatment and fix,

    Example , I thought I had posible MS back in 1991 as my symptoms with back pain along with fatigue lower back spasm was taking over my life, Local doctors with MRI ct scan exray spinal tap found nothing wrong,
    By 1992 I give up on local doctors and made trip to mayo, Took 3 trips to see 2 diferent specialists before 1 doctor finaly found what was never tested for before and came up with autoimmune dissorder of the spine, Proprial spinal myoclonis,

    He refered me to who he worked with before here in chicago and, 2 doctors here in chicago who I can't say there name concluded plasmapheresis treatment would benefit me ! I spoke at the hospital in front of a classroom of student doctors before my treatment explained how my condition came about and how it affects me during the day and video showed which was taken at the mayo me sleeping or resting while legs jump from spasm ,!

    My case and treatment is documented as a case study with Northshore ,
    11 treatments of plasmapheresis medications = prednesone . Imuran clonopin vicodine for pain of course,
    After about a year of treatment spasms resolved but still had back pain ,
    Most know many of the drugs I listed are taken by transplant patients and yes has side affects,
    Imuran even if I got the slightest cold had to stop taking it !

    Those meds are no longer in my life thank god and I got beter but back pain was stil with me,
    This is the reason why I have a long medical history ,

    My back pain was only adressed in 2004 as discogram shown leak and was time to try to resolve it with ADR,
    Failed ADR surgery caused nerve damage so here I am but still alive and kicking !
    I will be searching to get this beter untill the day I die,

    With all that being said as my advice to you has not changed !
    From 1 Spine Health member to another , Either you go with the flow and seek out a medical facility who can do a total work up and come up with some finding of some cause that would explain your symptoms which then would lead to geting the right treatment,

    Or you can play doctor and talk about it untill you are blue in the face and only a fool treats and diagnose themself when fact is many symptoms can match many diferent cause,
    This is 1 of the reasons doctors get tierd of hearing people say but I read this on the Internet ,

    There is nothing you going to tell a good doctor that he don't already know if he is a true specialist ,
    My last post to you before the newyear for some reason seemed to provoke a negative responce as my intentions were good as you are too blind to see it,

    I think in your words you said I was an asshole, Well I been called worse and I don't get offended easy,
    I assure you even some of the best doctors are assholes at times when it takes to be an asshole to get the point across,

    I want you to get beter I realy do, For this is the reason I have to be blunt ! Health is priority in all our lives,
    When you have options to go find 1 place to get all your answers about your medical situation Vs playing doctor going around in a circle and you chose to ride the roller coster and you can't get off the ride,

    You will never resolve your issue if you refuse to help yourself and take advise from your doctors or alexhurtingasshole !

  • You think way too much in to everything, And if you read what you actualy say in your post very often sounds so off the wall a level headed person goes in to a brain spin !

    1 would be you diagnose yourself and send yourself to whatever test as if it was your call not the doctor,
    Do you even realise how that sounds ? Lol

    Why don't you just get the key to the building and go in after hours and do your own MRI ct scan emg mylogram ,
    He'll just perform your own surgery while you at it, You know how to perform 3 level fusion by now right ?

    What you don't get is I post to many people and respond to posts for 4 years now and most members I can relate to there direct questions and medical concerns and have no trouble answering them if it's something I know about and I been there,

    You are just simply so far off the map to even comprehend I just simply have a hard time taking you seriously !
    When you name off every condition known to man kind by your own diagnose and it's not geting you any results and our last conversation concluded yes it's posible you might have autoimmune dissorder of some sort ,

    I know you seen spine specialist here in Chicago and I even remember which dr you seen due to he is with same hospital where I received my treatment for plasmapheresis ,
    Your thorasic I believe he ruled out to be the cause otherwise I would think you would have had him do the surgery,

    So if it's not a thorasic issue you have to let it go and move on , It makes no diference what you think you see on your MRI when every person will have something showing and if it's nothing serious to have surgery on then it's a dead end,

    I understand about money situation being hard and all but the time has to come to stop self diagnose and waste money on multiple dr appointments if they can't help and have no answer and only a biger hospital facility that I mentioned previous can do a total work up and find the source ,

    If you can still work then you are still capable in doing this to stop the roller coaster !
    If your condition is as serious as you say then this becomes a number 1 priority !

    Untill this hapens talking about ,lupus ,or god knows what other condition you have mentioned in numerous posts as I think you covered them all simply sounds insane and crazy !

    This is not a pissing contest and how many people we can find to feel sorry for us ! This is about being informative from 1 member to another to set them on the right path when they seem lost,

    And you made it clear many times you are lost and many of your posts show you are confused as he'll , This would explain your reason for self diagnose ,

    You might not appreciate me being blunt and so direct but some have learned when it's coming from a source who has lived it and been there and has nothing to gain by misleading & many have learned to appreciate blunt and direct,
    Because it gets results !

    I am simply challenging you to prove to me your not crazy and insane and get a diagnose before i die of old age,
    And when that hapens you might thank me for being blunt and direct ,
    But if another 4 years goes by and your still talking about all the symptoms known to man kind I swear I am going to hang myself !

    Now simply Git-er-done

    Alex, you explained yourself clearly in the opening remarks. But somewhere down the line, you words was moved around, twisted and soon became the Alex and Anelsen15 show.

    Reading about your battles back and forth can be interesting, but best fitted for one of the lighter topics.

    Thanks, I know you both understand where I am coming from.

  • This conversation is over ! You need to see 1 of the 40 shrinks you seen before, You drove your shrinks to see shrinks !
    I am going to take Rons advise, Besides I think I am developing a brain tumor !

    Best to stick with the original topic of the roids , I think the roids are kicking in, I can tell, I am starving , And a fliped off another driver for not using his turn signal , Wonder if it's the side affect of the roids , Roid rage !
