Hi Everyone yet!!!!
I was leaving therapy a few days ago and just walking home slowly and i started feeling pain in my rib area,then it became significant.I finally got home went and layed on my bed for a few min. and i started feeling sick to my stomach. I made it to the bathroom just in time. The rib pain got worse and the pain went down my back into my low back and hip area. My legs cramped up. I grabbed a bucket and went and layed back in bed because the pain was so much worse when i was upright.My daughter grabbed my large ice pack and put in under me.As the night went on the pain went up my spine into my shoulders and my arms started cramping as well.My husband wanted to take me to the hospital but i told him no. I've had back problems for close to ten years now and every time this happens and i go to the hospital all they do is give me a shot of pain med. and tell me to see my own doctor in the morning.I saw my naturopath two days later and i told her what had happened.She thinks that the therapy was just too much for my back that day.I'm taking so much pain med. between her and my neurologist i can't believe that i actually felt that much pain.Its been a few days now and the pain is still in my ribs but getting better again. I have to be careful everything i do causes the pain to get worse.I'm still waiting for the date of my mri. This ones with contrast.
For the people who wanted an update on how my injections are going with the naturopath i'm half way through them. There like trigger point injections only with natural substances, she also added in acupuncture to help with the effectiveness.The pain is still there,but i'm getting back a lot of the range of motion now. My massage therapist has also seen a difference in my muscles since i started this therapy.They both said the range will come first then the pain should leave after that as long as what i'm feeling isn't the damage caused by my spinal cord,but i'm sure that there has to be some improvement in the pain if some of the problem is tight muscles.
