Diagnosed with Psoas Syndrome
by Milner L. Ruff
(Jonesboro, GA, USA)
Back in September 2010 I jumped down from the back of a truck and injured my thigh. I did not realize it was serious until I could not stretch or do exercises anymore.
I went to physical therapy but that did not help. Then I started having pains in my lower back, so I went to a chiropractor that told me that I have Degenerative Disc Disease of the lumbar, severe arthritis, a herniated disc and severe muscle spasms.
Needless to say I have not been able to work since October 2010 and I am no closer to getting better. The doctors keep telling me my problem has nothing to do with the Psoas Syndrome and I keep trying to tell them it does.
I am extremely stiff in my back and can't hardly get up out of the bed. I never had any problems with my body until I jumped down off the truck and injured my thigh.
I have been fighting Social Security Disability. They turned me down twice and now I am in the hearing process. They told me I can work like this. And I am unable to find a doctor to really help me.
