Hello everyone. I am very new to this discussion group. I am a carpenter by trade, about 10 months ago I had a fall of some scaffolding, I fell about 2.5 metres onto a brick sill which hit across my middle back to upperback right underneath my shoulder blades. After the fall I got up reasonably fast with assistance from my best mate, who is also a tradesman for the bloke I work for. Now I've had MRI, CT scans, Xrays and recently a nuclear bone scan. The MRI didn't show anything to bad except some curvature in the top half of my spine which I'm certain wasn't there before. Anyway the scans don't show anything really and I am in chronic pain day in day out. I haven't been able to return to work because the pain is to much. It always feels heavy, i have tightness all the time, it's hard to bend, I have chest pains when I breathe not all the time but they do come and go, Numbness in my finger tips and pinching on the right hand side of my neck. It's just not where I want to be at 24 years old. The doctor tells me I have to push through the pain and keep stretching and walking but if I do anything like go for walks, at night I am literally in tears because everything ceases up and any movement is super painful. I am on medication 10 mg targin, 150 mg tramadol and 20 mg of endep. I guess I just need some advice on what to do and where to go from here. I'm only 24 years old before the fall I was 86kg and superfit spending hours in the gym daily, now I am 118kg and very unfit. Motivation is hard to find as I'm depressed about my current situation. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
