You guys just made me cry. My chiropractor has helped me with my headaches. I am feeling better about that. I'm at the same pointwhere I am thinking I need a good neurologist or orthopedic doctor because I already know that x-rays won't show anything. But I'll get them just for my chiropractor.
I am going to my doctor tomorrow (Thursday). I'm going to tell him everything I told his nurse today.
I am thinking my lower back pain is from several falls off a horse when I was 11-12 before I found out how to stay on...I know when I was at that age in Junior High ( Middle school), I would bend over and get sort of stuck on the way back up. Then my father opened the Back Center. I was on a back swing, where you are upsidedown, and I hear a loud pop on day and then I could bend up and down all I wanted without getting stuck.
I hope you get the right answers and find a good MD. Try not to wear the back brace a lot, take breaks, my neurosurgeon doesn't believe in back braces. He told me the brace makes one's back muscles lazy and weak. I had my lumbar spine fused and he didn't allow a back brace. he wanted me to walk. Do you use a heating pad? That might help calm the pain. Good luck. cshelp
Welcome to our family...as usual my friends who have posted have said it all and very well! I can so relate to why you cried!! I have felt so deeply at times the comforting words of all my HW Family, that I have cried as well, they are good tears for sure! When no one else understands you will always be able to count on US!!
Do you also go to a PM Doc? I know that my PM won't let me see a chiropractor...I have had a bad experience with one in the past. I can't imagine going to both... They seem to work against each other...

Ok everyone I'm back. OMG I feel so much better. My Internest doctor is going to give the order for x-rays so my Chiropractor can see them also. The doc finally gave me some pain killers. My hips and lower back hurt so bad. I am hoping I can get through work on Monday and Thursday of this coming week. I'm getting ready to go to bed for a while. Good night all.
