finding help

Posted by mamahaynes @mamahaynes, Sun, Feb 10 7:47pm

Hello! My name is Deb and Im 47. I live in an area where there is hardly any Drs unless you are able to travel. I am now to the point with my pain that I cant handle anymore. I see a chiropractor and for years he has told me I have degenerative in my hips that are now basically bone to bone. He has never told me to do anything. about 2 years ago i had sciatica in left leg. Then while that was going on I pulled hamstring in same leg. I finally got kinda thru that. However, my left foot is halfway numb, and it swells very easily. my lower back feels like crumbling when I stand or walk. Dr. had MRI done 2 weeks ago and I guess nothing was wrong but normal wear and tear. Dr told me that 2 hours after MRI wich was done on mobile unit. Where can a person go with these problems and get help? This all cant be in my head. Im just needng someone to help me get to dr, but have no one. I am on disability for bi polar and other mental issues. I can not talk on a phone. I need advice any would help. Thank you all

Hi Deb,
I feel under bad your suffering. Kansas is a bit far from my home base of California. I didn’t think you were from California though. You can’t hardly throw a rock without it landing in a populated area.
The mri didn’t show any inflammation or arthritis I guess. Do you have pain in other areas? Did the pain start after an accident or other trauma? If you were told you have bone on bone you must have had an X-ray or other imaging test that shows it. Have they mentioned a hip replacement?

@mamahaynes Call them and tell your story that you told us and ask for guidance to see a Dr. for hip problems. A Orthopedic Dr. Good luck . They should be able to give you some access to the right people

I really dont know what the MRI showed. they just called same day and said normal wear and tear. Ive had xrays at chiropractor. he just tells me that its getting worse. As for pain, my whole body hurts. I have so many other issues too that i dont know where to begin with drs. I dont know if the back issues are from degerative or ftom the constant beatings i took from an ex. some were pretty painful. For years my chiro has told me my lympnodes are swollen. I have gone from 138 to now 230 pounds from inactivity. Anything I do makes me hurt. No doctor yet has tod me ro do anything

Lioness ill do that… thank you!

Has your chiropractor said specifically what is getting worse? If not I’d give them a call and find out. Since your pain is not localized I’m wondering about Fibromyalgia, you may want to see a Rheumatologist to see if they can help.
Below is a link to the Fibromyalgia thread.

Hope someone gets gets to the bottom of your pain and you get some relief soon.
Best of luck,

@leonard Holloway yes, my chiropractor said each time I went that they have gotton worse. Got worse in just 3 months time. I will look at the link. Thank you!

I went to the same dr. office today, but different Dr. I have buldging L5 and 4. Im not really sure what that all means but start physical therapy on 14th. I got meds for my headaches, my incontinance and antibiotic for sinus infection plus steriod for something. For the life of me, I am just wondering why the nurse called me same day and said it was normal wear and tear. It kinda makes me mad
