I cant believe I'm posting for the first time after reading this stuff for 8 months. I hurt myself with a simple twist at work. Since then, I've lost my life! Doctors cannot see my injury, But I can feel it. I can't lay in my bed w/out having to go to the emergency room when I run out of the smallest dose of medicine allowable. They only give shots. At a conservative pain level of 8.5 they give shot only to traumitize the patient more, they do help but ptsd is bound to show up somewhere. My husband just now is beginning to understand only after watching me run out of meds for 8 days. I don't expect anyone to understand, except the doctors. Aren't they supposed to be supporting me in explaining to my family what is hard to understand. The doctors are just now trying to find out what's wrong. They found buldged disc, but "That can't cause this kind of pain" they say, " Well what can" is my response. I know I will be in the er getting shots once a week just to not bang my head against the wall! Damn Politician locking up doctors!View Thread
