Pete good luck and I hate to say I hope they find something as that sounds kinda weird but sometimes answers are better then none.
Thanks for all the support! Oh, I hope the Dr. is right and this horrible pain is nothing to worry about! It doesn't seem to be getting any better but it isn't getting worse either! It starts in the right side of my lower neck and goes straigt down the right side of my spine. It also goes to my right shoulder which feels is burning hot like bursitis but I'm sure it's not. It's coming from my neck! I told all this to the Doc but he doesn't seem concerned or worried about it. I think I already mentioned, if the pain does not go away in two weeks, He wants me to have a cat scan. Maybe insurance won't pay for another MRI??? I'm at work and my meds are not touching this dadgum pain! I'm switching back and forth from my neck brace to one of those microwave "Bed Buddy Back Wraps" for moist heat in 2 min. on high! It gets really hot! I'm starting to worry about it again but right now, I'm more worried about the marrage councellor tomorrow morning! I've been writing down some notes about things that bother me but I just can't imagine what will happen if I bring them up. They make my wife sound mean. I don't know if it's her metapause or what but I just don't know what I'm going to do??? I'm stressing about getting my stressing fixed! Maybe I'm just crazy, it wouldn't suprise me! Maybe I just dream up all this stuff and am >> ?dellusional? (not sure how to spell that one???) Well maybe the Doc will figure it out? I've heard they don't take sides? If I tell him/her everything I'm thinking, I know what my wife will say, I've heard it a million times! That I'm the cause of all the problems> Maybe I am and crazy too??? Now I don't want to go! Oh PoPo>Potty>PoPo!
Glad your Xrays are good.....take it from me when the neck is fused even though xrays look good (which is great) there are many symptoms we can experience. The fusion causes a locked area in the neck so now all the other vertebrae from top to bottom take the stress of the immobile part trying to compensate and move correctly (which they can't). This info comes from the best of the best Neurologist,Neurosurgeons and PM Dr.s. It just is, so if we move, bend, reach, sit, sleep,turn or whatever incorrectly or work for BOSSES who lack empathy, we get a reaction, never truly knowing what we actually did. Symptoms of burning, spasm, weakness can occur.....whats the solution?????......you have to learn a new respect for your body and chores that you do...wish I could say you didn't but you MUST!
As far as your Marriage Counseling, go there knowing no one is wrong, a wise couselor told us once get back to your Why's, why you fell in love, why you married him/her, why you chose him/her to have children with. If your Why's don't matter anymore or you don't care to find them again, then it probably isn't going to work.
Good luck today and know we are all rooting for a positive,healing for both of you!
