    Are you seeing a doctor? You need to be seen by a doctor. If your symptoms are worsening, you need to go to the ER.
    5.12 You agree that any information, opinions or other content provided by doctors or patients on Spine-health.com forums is for educational purposes only and is not intended for medical diagnoses or treatment. Always consult with a physician for any health problem or medical condition.
  • Both have said don't worry about it, but. They both can't figure out why I am getting worse. That is why I am asking others that have the same situation.
  • If you have doctors who are telling you not to worry about it, given your diagnosis, then you need new doctors, or specialists who know about and understand your condition.
  • Or maybe someone on this forum that will just answer my questions and help me out. I might get some answers today from a different physiatrist that I am going to today.
  • Mike, from what I've read, your condition progressively gets worse.... I'm no Doctor, but if your Doctor or Doctors are telling you everything is fine, you need to go in and get a second opinion!

    And I can't forget that I'm not ashamed, to be the person that I am today.
  • You keep wanting answers to medical questions that no ONE here is qualified to give you....that's why you aren't getting answers.
    We can NOT provide medical advice, nor can we tell what symptoms are related to your condition.
    You don't need a physiatrist for pain management, you need a doctor who knows about your condition and then he can refer you to the proper other doctors needed to manage it.

    Sandi is right. You are not going to get the answers you are looking for here as we are NOT Doctors. I know first hand as I've been reprimanded for doing things I'm not allowed to do. Even though my intentions are good and I only want to help, I have to remember that there are rules for serious reasons and they need to be followed.

    I've tried to reach out to you via PM and you never respond. I'm confused as to what you need at this point. Perhaps try to give us more detailed information? Your Doctors have to be telling you something. We can certainly give you an opinion or use our own experiences to help/guide u.
