Hi all, I'm new to this discussion group and would like to get some feedback from someone who have experience with something similar.
About 15 years ago I had an accident and fell with my lower back onto some steps. Since then my back will sometimes feel like it locks and I can't turn or make any movement. Recently I started to get a sharp shooting pain in my lower back and pain down the front of my leg and a needles and pins feel into the top "bridge" of my foot. I had x-rays and a MRI scan done but it shows that there is nothing wrong. I went for physio where they have sent me links which I feel indicates that the pain is in my head and exercise called the Jacobson treatment where you should for example blow up your mouth for 5 seconds, clench your fists, etc. which actually makes me feel more insane than anything else. I have also been for 2 back adjustments and 1 neck adjustment after the chiropractor said that my hips are not aligned and he mentioned sciatica and that all should be healed after a few adjustments and exercise. But after the 2nd back adjustment and neck adjustment I felt sick and dizzy and could not see the point in going back if it makes me feel worse. I am in so much pain but are running out of options and patience as to how I can get proper diagnosis and pain relief. Over the counter pain and inflammatory medications does not help either.
Does anyone know if there is something out there that might help?
