I have been dealing with pain for the last 6 yrs or so now. It started in my neck and shoulders. I had fusion surgery almost 2 years ago at C5/C6. After the surgery, I started having excruciating headaches which I now treat with a number of prescription medications. I also take medications for nerve pain. Other than Aleve, I don't take anything for the pain because they don't think I need it. My neck has not gotten any better, I now have added issues further down my spine in my lower thoracic area and my lumbar spine. I have gone to a chiropractor that doesn't touch my neck, but can't help me any longer, I have gone to PT who no loinger is helping me either because they want to save some sessions incase I need it down the road this year and they feel I need some work done. I started seeing a physiologist and he refuses to do another MRI on my neck because it didn't show anything to worry about a year ago. I have locked vertebrae at my T12 that he says that is rare to have a problem there. He is only willing to look at my lower back. I believe there is something wrong with my whole back from neck to tailbone but if I can't get someone to look into it, there is no way to know. Should I press the issue or should I trust him for now? After being blown off so many times by doctors, I don't know who to trust anymore.
