I'm new to this forum malarkey so I hope I'm in the right section. My pain issues started 24 years ago when at 13 I had an accident on the back of a motorbike which I shouldn't have been on so never go my injuries (severe neck and shoulder pain) and seen to in case it alerted my parents to what id been up to (I was a naughty kid). Several years later I started having extremely bad pain again and trouble looking up for any amount of time. I went back and for the hospital many times before an x-ray described my problem as cervical rib syndrome and I had physiotherapy but it seemed to just get worse and worse. Eventually had an M.R.I (2004) which diagnosed degenerative kyphosis and herniated disc at c5/c6 a few years later after copious amounts of painkillers ,surgery was suggested and I immediately agreed, so 2010 had second M.R.I. I was to have a follow up appointment just to make sure everything was as it was before and then all being well the op. six months past I heard nothing my Dr suggested making a call, I did 'it shouldn't be long now receptionist' said so I sat back and waited. to cut a long story short two agonising years later after many phone calls from myself and my Dr they admitted they lost my notes and I couldn't be found in the system.
Eventually I was found, I seen the consultant only to be told that any the M.R.I from 2010 things had gotten worse as another disc had herniated c6/c7 and there's no way they can operate as it would put to much pressure on my other disc some of which are already bulging.
I am now waiting for the results of my third M.R.I the consultant things I may have ostoarthritis and I'm at my wits end. I have no life anymore I'm on Mst continuous, Codine, Diclofenic, lyrica for the pain, powder to help with the toilet and something that counteracts the diclofenic that helps with my hiatus hernia. The pain I am in is unbearable I have constant neck ache, headache, mid back pain lower back pain which comes and goes, feet and pain. Any suggested for pain relieve would be greatly appreciated.
