Hello all just wanted to let you all know that I finally got an answer today on what is the matter with my lower back and butt pain.  I have a dislocatated pelvis!  Apparenty when I got hit from behind in my car accident my feet were on the breaks and when she hit me the impact pused me forward into my legs which in turn shoved them back into my pelvis thus dislocating my pelvis.
 
Just to let you all know as well that it was the massage theripist that found the dislocation buy doing a phyical exam, which by the way none of the other docs I have been seeing never did!  Because of what she found on the phyical exam she was able to see it on the xrays.  They were looking for breaks fractures or herniations exc! but she just felt around and said that not all was lining up.
 
I am finally relived to finally know what the prob is, I know it sounds weird but I feel validated by the knowledge.  So now I can tell everyone to kiss my a** who looked at me like I was faking.  Not that I needed that but it sure feels good to say it all the same.
 
I will be seeing a craniosacral therapist.  Has any one ever heard of them?  Im really not sure what to think about it to tell you the truth.  Some of there concepts seem very new age to me, but hey at this point I am willing to do anything I can to get some relife.  If any one has had any dealing with one can you please let me know your experiences? 
 
I also found out that some of the treatments that they have been sending me for were only making things worse for me as well like traction which i have been doing these last few weeks.
 
I really hope that now noing will help out with at the least getting some relief.
 
I am sorry I havent been posting much of late but I have not been feeling well at all been in alot of pain and just been dealing with alot or other things as well of late but I have been on reading them all and I just wanted to let you all know that I am praying for you all and I hope you all have a good halloween!
 
Take care
Lara

Lara,

I am so happy for you! Of course, it's not good that you are in pain or that you have this injury, but I can imagine the relief you must feel. Now at least you know what the problem is and hopefully you will now have better luck correcting it! I can't believe that NONE of your docs did a physical exam on you during all this time. That is really inexcusable!

I'm actually looking into craniosacral therapy at the moment as well. A friend of mine practices it & has been trying to convince me to try it for the last couple of weeks. I don't know all that much about it either. I'm a bit confused about how it might help eye pain, but according to them everything is connected. My acupuncturist actually works a lot on my neck, which is where the cranialsacral therapist would work on me, and that helps, so I guess it is worth a try.

Again congrats on the diagnosis! I hope you get some relief soon!

Lara,

I am happy to hear you finally got a good diagnosis and hope they can fix your problem and thus fix that pain for you. I went two years going to several DRS. until I finally had one DR take 45 seconds looking a a simple Xray to tell me my hip implant had been loose and infected for two years. He discovered this just weeks before I had planned on ending my life because of pain.

SO I am so glad you finally found your answer and good luck to you. I am new here but I care,

so let me know how it goes with the new Doc. I personally have never been to a craniosacral therapist.  Good Luck

Patty

Lara,
Craniosacral therapy is wonderful. It feels really good because they barely touch you at all, and it really did make a huge difference for me. My pain was in my head & neck and was related to blocked CSF so I didn't have exactly the same situation you do, but it really did make a difference for me.

I never thought it would work & thought it sounded really new-agey too, but I was finally at the point where I said even if the guy danced around the table chanting voo-doo for an hour that if it worked I would pay for it.
It's pretty difficult to get insurance to cover it. I don't imagine it will be easier with an auto insurer.
The way I finally got it covered was that my PCP ran tests (MRIs & bloodwork) prior to the treatment starting & then after a few months of treatment & there were noticeable differences, esp. in the MRI that couldn't be explained by anything other than the crainiosacral treatments. After that, my insurer did agree to pay for a certain number of sessions.

Best wishes for the treatments & congratulations on finally getting a diagnosis. If you have any specific questions, just let me know. :)

take care,
frances

Lara you are so right about it feeling good to actually having a diagnosis. Its when we get stuck in the corner w/everyone scratching their heads & butts saying "well I don't know why you hurt like this, I can't find nothing wrong", that just nearly puts us over the edge. Now you know what its going to take to get get you back on your feet. Hugs, Susie

When I was in my car accidents a few years ago I did the same thing by putting my foot on the break cause I almost hit the person in front of me (luckly I didnt but came inches from hitting them) but I looked in my rearview mirror to see someone coming at me at 55mph ATLEAST....so I straightened my legs for the impact and I'm wondering if thats what happened to me...I have severe pain in my very lower back and butt and numbing that goes down my legs. But I have very bad luck with doctors and gave up on asking them to take a look at it. So for the past 3 years I have been just "living" with it. But if I ever do find a doctor that seems to care I'm gonna ask them to see if thats what I got going on.....

Hello everyone and thanks so much for all your support and impust.  It means the world to me.  Im sorry I havent been on much but I have been in alot of pain this last 2 weeks exp this week.

It got so bad that i ended up in the er today.  I thought it had something to do with my back flaring up or maybe my pelvis was dropping, but it ended up being an sever urinary track infection that is in my kindenys.  So I spent all day getting fluids and anibodic drip. 

It kinda scares me that I was so willing to put all my aches and pains to my injuries that I incurred in my accident and didnt even think it might be something else.  Just a heads up to all you out there that every new or worseing sysmptem doesnt ness mean it has to do with what you had going on previously but it can make those conditions worse.

Hello Kitty, the only reason I found out is because after several mri and all kinds or other testing didnt show anything they sent me to a massage therpist.  She is an  craniosacral therapist, maybe you can look into that in your area or even a chriopractor they can treat an unalliened pelvis as well.  If your still having pain im sure you can at least get into a chrio and you can tell them about it and maybe they can help you to get it better.  It is very overlooked by alot of docs from what I have looked into it.  I wish you luck and hope it all goes well.

I hope you are all well

take care

Lara

Lara,Im sorry to hear you have uti. I have had several of those. Make sure you drink plenty of fluids to flush the infection out and take all of your antibotics. Did they give you anything for the bladder pain like urised ? I hope you feel better soon.(((((((hugs)))))

Hello Kitty, you need to see a specialist. See if you need a referal through your insurance. If not find a reputable pain clinic. I have lower back issues with the damage in my legs, much worse in my left. Thats nerve damage from your sciatica (sp) bones. You need to get started on treatment. It will only hurt worse (trust me) as you go on. If you have any questions feel free to ask. I like to say I have been poked & prodded all over. :) ((hugs)) hope you have a great day. Happy voting everyone!
