My Doctor Thinks I'm Crazy
I have suffered from both low back pain and pain between my shoulder blades for years. It all started when I was pregnant with my daughter about 4 years ago. I had intense heart burn during my pregnancy that has never gone away.
I have been to the ER because it was so bad I thought I was having a heart attack. About a year ago my lower back hurt so bad I could not move. Several doctor visits later and 2 different ER trips I was finally told it was my gallbladder.
But even in the hospital after my surgery I kept telling them I still had pain in my lower stomach area. And my acid reflux did not improve. I told them of the intense pain between my shoulder blades and they told me that was due to my gallbladder.
WELL... at first my low back pain and stomach pain and between my shoulder blades did improve slightly... but a few months later it was the same issues. Now a year later my doctor thinks I'm crazy and I have no relief.
I had to quit my job because my different back pains are so intense. I went to a chiropractor and he told me my hips are off by 30%. The x-rays between my shoulder blades show an S curve to it.
NOW to make matters worse LOL... my right hip can hardly move, especially in the morning. As the day goes on it seems to be coming from my lower hip area almost groin area.
I’m only 34. I cannot live like this and not function normally like I should be able to. I don’t know who to turn to anymore? I am overweight and have lost 20 lbs so far.
But when I try to exercise walk for extended periods of time I get intense cramps in my back and feel like shin splints, just from walking 20 mins. There have been times I thought I was going to literally fall over and not get up.
