Apr 23, 2017 · Stomach bloating/ digestive issues in Digestive Health

My 20 year old son has been sufferding witht he bloating, stomach soarness, chest tighrening, acid reflux, and nauseousness. He has had stomach study done, Ultra sound, C.T Scan, and a barrium swallow also. Still he cannot get a diagnoises. We are going to his first appointment at Mayo Clinic in Scottsdale in June. He is so discouraged and seems depressed, which is totally understandable. I’m glad I found this way of connecting with people with like symtoms. I think it’s really good to talk to others and I will keep encouraging my son to read some po’sts. I

Thank you for replying to my post. I never thought of looking for a grant. I don’t even know where to begin. I will google it and see what turns up though. Doctors that I know don’t really seem to care so much. I need them for so many things I would be very intimidated to even ask them to try and get an examination table that I can use. They have so many patients and my appointment time is always very limited and I never seem to have the time I need with them to address all of my needs. A lot of the time i will ask something and as the doctor walks out of the room they tell me we will address that at my next visit. By then I forget or have already found some way to address my issue on my own. This is by far crapy medical care. I do appreciate your idea and I will absolutly look into it. Thank you very much.

Thank you for the advise Kay. I will absolutly locate this council and see if they can offer any help. I have been paralyzed for 29 years now and I do not know many other people with spinal cord injuries right now. I have known many over the years but some have passed away, moved away or just lost contact with so it would be nice to meet people who do have to deal with this horrible way of living and share information and maybe offer support. Thank you again. Have a blessed day.

May 28, 2016 · Spinal Cord Injury in Spine Health

I have a spinal cord injury and would like to meet others who have to deal with the daily challenges that come along with s.c.i. I live in a state that is very needy in offering services for people who have to use a wheelchair all the time, especially when seeking medical services. I have yet to find a local doctor of any kind who has an ajustable exam table therefore I am always examined while seated in my wheelchair so my exams are not as complete as othes who are able to access examination tables. I feel so discriminated against whenever I visit a doctor for anything other than medication refills. Currently I need to see a gynocologist but I am obviously not able to. I call around every couple days to find one with an adjustable exam table but none of them do. Most of them needd me to explain what one is. I find this very depressing and agravating at the same time. That is why I can only make a couple calls every couple days. I can’t stand the fact that this town is so behind the times. I have been able to find doctors in other states that do have these exam tables and that do have knowledge about spinal cord injuries. I really do not know what to do at this point. I will be filing a complaint once I find out who to complain to. So this is what is on my mind but there are so many other things that I would be happy to chat about conserning s.c.i’s so if you also have one and want to chat please repond.
