I'm ok today, except for my usual chronic pain. However, for three days before this I could barely walk. When I walked down the hall I looked like a drunken sailor. I don't want to tell my Pain doctor because he'll say, "Oh your meds aren't working, I'll send you to a neurosurgeon, or neurologist" I just want to live quietly and learn to live with this darnable pain. I don't want surgery. I don't want to run around in 104 degree heat. I don't want anyone looking ....down there. My tail bone seems to be a source of much of this problem. I broke it giving birth.

Pamela,

Do you mean that you could barely walk and "looked like a drunken sailor" because of dizziness?? Or something else??
How long have you been on your current combo of meds?? Have you added or changed anything recently that could be the cause?

Hi Pam: In my accident one of the things I forgot to mention was my tailbone was fractured. My tailbone after my neck fusion was the next operation I indured and while not a painful operation it was extremely enbarassing with every nurse, physical therapy person plus being at a University hospital every intern and every training nurse lookin up myrearend. Then as another cruel result of course was the infection ! !
Often i experience walking like a drunk sailor and I am with You as I simply wait it out sometimes for days as I want no more surgeries, tests etc. I have surrendered to living in pain and taking the same drugs that my brother used to commit suicide after having a failed back surgery years ago.
I believe my drunken walking is from my neck although my entire neck is fused I have two screws that are loose and sometimes they move and to me this is why I walk funny until they move back i am a funny walker. Surgery to correct my problem is not available as the surgery would either kill me or make me a vegetable so i live with the chance that one day they will come loose and pierce my spinal cord. Rather than put myself thru a very dangerous surgery with a very small chance of sucess I chose to let my Angels take care of me and when they decide to take me so be it.
Sorry for being so depressing is there a small chance You have a inner ear problem ?? Do You feel any better with Neurontin ? I was on it and felt no better so i stopped. All i take now are my pain meds I threw away everything else antidepressants, muscle relaxers, sleeping pills and in doing so I feel better. I hate being a zombie plus all the meds I was on cannot be good for my liver and kidneys. Hopefully You find out what causing the "walk" Best regards.
