@jesfactsmon I do think they should be considered, however I'm so lost as to what needs to be addressed with myself, doctors make me feel very defeated and that this is caused from anxiety, but pain like this… Is not anxiety, not voiding properly for 5 months, is not anxiety, having quiet bowels for 5 months, is not anxiety, all this left side pain, is not anxiety You get what I mean haha!!
That being said, one of the beginning issues I had, 2nd visit I went in for, was low left rib pain, upper abdominal pain and it radiated to the back. I'm guessing in the area of T9-T11 (T11 hemangioma). I had asked my physician about slipping rib syndrome "SRS" because the pain was burning in my ribs and that pain held for months until PT. It started to get a lot better with her help although, I wasn't diagnoses by anyone to have actually having it. So I rulled it out until 3 days ago. I'm not sure what I have done, but my low, left ribs are burning and I can feel a rib under another. I'm wondering if my rib misalignment/rib flare (addressed by my PT) is tugging on my spine and all this urinary, bowel and nerve pain is from the tugging and the muscles that have swelled along the left side. Maybe this is causing a lot of misfiring nerves?? I feel this is another area to address, but unfortunately, there are only a few thoracic surgeons familiar with it and only a handful of doctors/radiologists know how to test for it, but I can tell you.. Whatever has happened has had me in tears multiple times today and in bed.
So 2 things I suppose that can cause nerve pain and radiating issues. Hemangiomas and Slipped Ribs SRS, but I'm stumped about the SVTs and internal vibrations, unless the internal vibration is the SVT?
This pain has caused anxiety/depression, anyone in this state and no answers would develop this at some point, so I don't doubt that some of my symptoms could be from these, but the pain and system interruptions are real. This is way over sharing, but I'd have to tell doctors. Today I urinated so much in 2 trips, I had to take pain medication because my left abdomen and bladder hurt so bad. Something isn't working properly and my tests have been good. I'm just stumped, but could nerves be causing problems?
I have good news, and bad. My doctor said he'd refer me to Mayo or UofM (he prefers Mayo), but I'm not rich by any means and we still have 3 children at home and 1 in college. I'd have to check with insurance and even so I have to figure out how to pay for it. I know for certain I would want the hemangiomas addressed as well as SRS as a possibility. I'm not sure what else this could be at this point, other than nerves misfiring from something.
I wish I could give you a hug x, you have been more attentive than my specialists 🙂 and I will never be able to thank you enough.
I attached a chiropractor Xray so you can see how misaligned I am in the thoracic, lumbar region. My left is being so compromised, but why?
