:''( Hi, I'm new to this. Found the site..maybe I can get some real feed back. I'm having major problems. I fell at work 2.5 yrs ago. Some stupid jerk was cleaning a custard machine and draining the water on the only throughfare. Had a raised drain (a construction flaw I found out later)I slipped, fell hard on the wet tile, hitting my shoulder blade on drain.My whole back side was wet. I went to a chiropractor, I had a huge hematoma on my shoulder blade,my R elbow hurt like crazy, I could hardly walk, but I toughed it out and worked anyway, (my husband's disabled, and I have a mortgage to pay.
I've been to Orthopedics, I have a SI joint instability and a Lumbar dysfuction, (psy ther says) The Orthos, and chiro say that this pain is a direct result of my fall. I developed foot pain. Shoots down leg, numbess...Ortho says the Si and lumbar doesn't not cause foot pain...BUT IT DOES, because when I'm IN, the foot pain is gone. And surgery is not an option. I can literally feel my pubic bone wanting to split apart! But the SI belt does help, but when I sit down it wants to come off..It's embarrassing at work. Anyway, no one seems to have addressed the shoulder and neck pain. Work comp seems to focus that the MRI said I have facet joint arthritis and it was pre exisitng. I have stabbing pains between my shoulders and aching on the shoulder blade and inside the shoulder. Oh, this is all on my right side. I eventually developed pain in my left shoulder, It just kills me, like the muscle is being torn. Anyway, I developed this tendonitis thing . My arm feels like a turniquet is on it, muscle spasms in both arms and shoulders, (I can visually see the muscles spasm!) Feels like rubber bands snapping throughout my right arm, goes across my collar bone and up the front of my neck, and my hands cramp and elbows hurt. I have to see the Work Comp independent doctor soon. I'm scared! I feel like I'm becoming disabled...I'm in so much pain. I'm taking anti inflammatories...barely touches it...My arm and shoulder blade is killing me while I'm typing this...but I have to see if any one has any idea..ubiased...of course...as to WHAT THE HECK IS WRONG WITH ME???
THanks for your time..akwolf4ever
