ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
I had an obscure twisting unnatural hyper extended stretching injury in 2018 and my body has been being “pulled inward” and down since. Have pectus excavation and pushed down on flaired rib tip (rib 7) during injury and popped something out and back it place and snapped something. I blacked out for a moment, felt instantly crooked, core pulled to the right, heat up my leg and midline and stomach, felt fluish all the time. After 3 weeks I can barely remaking upright or sit for more than a few minutes. All BW fine, no ANA (autoimmune, no diseases, no GI issues, no neuro diseases etc). Worked with a sports med DR for 6 months and feels the pulling and fascial twisting in my core as I do. It’s lulled me in and down so much my chest started to cave (it’s gone from caves to not within a year). Was fine before injury. Feels like insides , specifically transverse abdomenis or close by muscle is “stuck” on my floating ribs and constantly pulled my rib cage in and down. Skeletal structure test well, MRIs from pelvis to brain all good, except for rapidly changing chest (pectus excavating) changing from bad to worse to ok within months. Believe transverse abdomenis or some muscle or fascia is stuck internally.
I can barely walk or stand for long as my whole body is uneven with the “pull”. Feels like my body is collapsing but I’m not weak or unstable, there is a force pulling this. Chiro doesn’t work , PT agrees there something pulling my body as my muscles and skeleton are fine, all DRs show healthy vitals. no scleroderma or lupus or manor als...nothing.
Can’t sleep without meds as my body feels unnaturally pulled and twisted in affecting all areas. Symptoms can be induced or relieved with physical movement or manipulation.
Worked with sports med DO who did OMM for 6 months 1x/week u raveling me from legs to diaphragm to neck and my body starts to ravel in again slowly after treatment at same spot on the lower left quad of my abdomen from front to side to back. This is only form of pain management I can get.
I was an active person before this injury and I feel strongly it’s an abdomenal muscle from when I pushed down in my 7th rib tip which did push the whole left rib cage posterior and then back again.
Feel like I’m stuck internally in the wrong position. Muscle malpositionitioned etc. feels literally like transverse abdomenis Is stuck in btwn floating ribs 11/12 and false ribs.
Ultrasound shows ribs 9 and 10 subluxing and rib 11 pinching.
This is an injury gone unaddressed. I was a car accident not taken seriously for months. Only until my sports med dr felt my tangled body and popped my rib 7 back in place did anyone believe the injury happened.
