I have been told that I may have Scoliosis, and also that I may have a "form" of MS called Scheuermann's Disease. I can tell you this. I do have a lot of pain and my back doesn't sit normally. I do have a "hunch" like a MR Burns from the Simpsons posture and that is my normal posture. As a Chef, I stand over tables and my pain is beyond what I would wish on any enemy. It gets to be unbearable after a few hours standing without bending or hanging from something to release the pressure, having to use towels to try and relieve the pressure by becoming my own Chiropractor. I went to a chiropractor a few years ago and felt that if I went every other day or so to get decompression I would be ok, then the bill was ridiculous and I felt betrayed by the Doctor because I am truly in pain and need more than a adjustment I think. As a opiate addict, I used narcotics to "numb the pain" from 2005 until 2008, not prescribed of coarse. In 2008 I finally got help for my addiction and also found that the pain was no longer under a veil. Although I do take Suboxone 12mg PRD and Zanaflex 4mg TID, the pain is still there and I have awesome insurance through Premera blue cross. I would be willing to undergo something "a study maybe or something" that may relieve this horrible burning and pain. In the peak of my back numbness, you can stick a needle into my shoulder and I only feel the pressure and no nerve pain. Is there a doctor in the Seattle-Tacoma area that can help please! I also have BP issue and am on other medications including, lisinipril/hci, Cardura and metropolol and would be willing to release my medical records to a doctor who may understand this.Even with the Buprenorphine and the tizanadine, I suffer a lot of pain and have started to think at 36 yrs old, No one will ever understand how I feel! Any help would be great and I pray to God and have faith that someone might have a way to help me.
