I am worried I will not be able to do Band Camp because of it. I am worried also because my PT Office has not responded from the day I did my Evaluation which was on July 3rd. They said it would take 1 week to hear from them. It will be 2 weeks tomorrow. I am so worried I won't be able to Band Camp because I am not getting any pain relief. My legs and arms goes numb but my doctor said the numbness in my legs can't be from my neck. Is that true? I am just confused and worried about my future. Any Ideas what my outcome may look like? My doctor aslo said I will be parlayzed is that true?
Here is my story:
I am new to this site. I am 18 and what I go by on the internet is my nickname.. Koyko.. I wouldl like advice and things for you people. I will try to check this often as I can. I am usaully on the computer a lot. So here is my story.
At 16 and in Janurary 2007, I got hurt by this girl, Jazmine. Jazmine pushed back of my head down with her full body weight. We were at school when this happened. So I went sat down and started crying by the bus lane because we were waiting for the buses. I was in so much pain, I was holding my neck and crying. It was first load, so I had to deal with this until third load. Well, when I got home I told my mom what had happened. She told me get and Ice Pack put it on my neck and get one to put on my head and go lay down. So I did. I had homework to do, so I got up about an hour and half later because by then the ice pack wasn't cold anymore. So I done my homework. My mom came in and asked me if I felt better. I told no.
Well. In May, I turned 17. I went to my doctor. She said it was an extreme case of whiplash. Then I was put on meds by my doctor. I on Parafron which is a musle relaxor. I am also on an anti-inflamatory. I can never remeber it's name.
Then in December 2007, I still was complaining. My legs was going numb and my shoulder was hurt ing and my neck was very stiff and my arms/hands would go numb and swell. My granny knew something was unusal because I was hurting so often and I never complained this much.
Finally, in April 2008, I got my MRI done. My doctor said I had Cervical Degenerative Disc Disease (DDD). It was mostly in C4 - C6. C4 - C5 was degenerating and C6 is buldging. I was scared when I found that out. I also had a thyroid problem that showed up during the MRI. So we got more research done on that. I have Hypoplasia in my Thyroid. Hypoplasia is where one side of your thyroid is undeveloped. So we found that out, nothing was done for that though. In, April we asked the doctor see me for a 2nd time. He said no on June 2nd.
In May, I turned 18, We are getting ready for answers to the Cervical DDD.
Thanks for the help,
