I am sorry to hear about what your ex did and that you have back pain now as a result. Dr. Farrell is a psychologist, so let me suggest you try reposting this on the Back Pain Management community. They're friendly and supportive, and have an M.D. as their Health Expert.
Also, have you talked this over with your doctor? He or she may have some treatment options to offer, or may refer you to a specialist.
We encourage you to use polls wisely. They are not intended as a substitute for the expert opinion of your doctor, psychiatrist, therapist, or pharmacist.
At the bottom of each page in our Comunities, we also have this information for you. Especially take note of the first sentence which I have placed in bold: "Do not consider WebMD User-generated content as medical advice. Never delay or disregard seeking professional medical advice from your doctor or other qualified healthcare provider because of something you have read on WebMD. You should always speak with your doctor before you start, stop, or change any prescribed part of your care plan or treatment. WebMD understands that reading individual, real-life experiences can be a helpful resource, but it is never a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment from a qualified health care provider. If you think you may have a medical emergency, call your doctor or dial 911 immediately."
Posts look neater, and have less funny characters or symbols if you post them into Notepad or a text editor first, rather than a word processing program. The coding from the word processing programs conflicts and creates the strangeness.View Thread
