I went to a chiro (with all the certifications) because I had lower back pain that a Orthopedic said was caused probably from a bulged disc.
On the first visit he did different exams, and then on the second and third visit he did 'adjustments' on the back and neck. The hours following the 'adjustments' felt really good, but after a day I felt like ***my whole spine*** is on fire and crazy pains all over. Now it's a week and a half after the second visit and I feel weird pains all over my back, I feel the whole pelvis area and the lower back like 30% numb from the usual, I have leg pains and I feel crippled. I'm only 30 years old with a business to run and a life, I don't know what to do! I'm so lost!
I have in a few days a meeting with a spine specialist and I also have a lower back MRI scan in a few weeks - but how can 'regular' doctors help? They probably wont even understand what the exact problem is. I feel there is like 3-5 problems going on simultaneously. I've had in my life bad experiences with doctors and I don't really trust them \ their methods.
I can't believe what I'm going through. And I also have these weird things going on in my neck. The doctor will probably think I'm nuts when I explain all the symptoms. And just a few weeks ago I felt completely normal except a bit of lower back pain (now that seems like heaven to me! I didn't even think or imagine it can become so much worse).
I'll appreciate any word of advice, thanks!
