I was stopped letting someone cross in the crosswalk and a guy on his cell didnt try to stop...just plowed into my car from behind. My toddler was in the car but wasnt injured..thankfully. I am not sure but I think I was turned around talking to my son. I cant remember some of what happened. I have spent ever since going to acupuncture (1 yr), chiro (16 mos) massage therapy (6 mos) and finally chiro sent me to phys therapy last october (5 mos).
I healed in betw shoulder blades pain. Low back pain has improved alot but flares with any activity, sometimes pain goes down r. leg and walking is almost impossible. Neck pain daily and cannot turn my neck most days left or right.
I stopped going to acup b/c I went back to work & couldnt keep up w/ all the appts. Massage prescription expired. P/T said last week they want to take a break and want me to f/u with family doctor for a "tens" machine. Chiro says he is just 'maintainin' me and not actually helping me improve any longer so he's done after 2 more appts.
I'm not healed. I feel like doctors dont know how to help me so they are giving up. They all know I dont have my range of motion back and strength back. I had hope and just pushed thru all the appts but now I feel like I've lost hope because noone thinks I can improve. If this is as good as it gets I dont know how to handle that. I cannot even hold my toddler w/o suffering for a day or two with intense pain and more stiffness.
I have heard that since chiro didnt send me to p/t for almost 1 year that my pain will hang around alot longer than if I would have gone initially.
Is this how it will be for years? I'm feeling discouraged.......
