ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
What is the cause of all my ailments at such a young age and why? Is it partly genetics or because of the lifestyle I have lived? Why can't my primary care physicians or any of the many specialists I have been to give me a specific reason for my condtition? What can't my chronic pain be managed at this point in my life, what am I doing wrong to add to my pain and suffering? Is this phantom pain in having because when I am imaged the X-Ray or MRI always comes back clear with slight variations of lumbar curve that don't appear as if they should cause so much pain. Well if nothing is showing up on my MRI images then where is this pain coming from? Why do I have to walk with the assistance of a walker or a cane and on some days, why can't I walk at all? Why does my Low back and sacru m SO joints get so stiff and hurt so bad? Some days I stand up and my sciatica or so I've been told, is so bad I'll call right back down. Because the pain has shot from low back SI Joints down both legs and literally knocks me off my feet. The pain is so severe that when I walk and my disc hit the wrong nerve, I'll instant fall down. Every year the pain and symptoms get progressively worse. No matter if I diet to get weight off my spine to relive some pressure or if I do lower cross syndrome stretches or if I do sciatica stretches ,nothing helps with pain or its offers short term relief. Why can't I shake this heavy depression? I've grief stricken over my Mother's death for the last 6yrs, why? Why does my depression take such a toll on me physically? Did my gastric bypass 10 years ago cause some of these issues because I lost the weight so rapidly in the beginning?
