Good morning! My name is Dani. It is very nice to meet you. I am glad that you found the Healing Well Community, even better the chronic pain forum.... Were the cool ones!
I am glad to hear you are no longer a pain patient. Mind my asking what was your diagnosis is? Many of us here have multiple chronic conditions. Multiple problems attacking our systems all at once. I have decided our pain must like company, other wise why invite so many other guests? Hehe
It is re freshing that you are helping others in any way you can. I once read ~~> "Loving others can make the climb down easier." I believe this to be true.
It was very nice to meet you. I do hope to get to know you better as time goes by.
Hello Angel, and I too would like to welcome you to Healing Well. I am putting up with some medical issues of my own that prevents me from spending a lot of time sitting at the computer-so for now I am in & out here so to speak lol.
Its great that you finally found a dr that was willing to listen to you, willing to believe you, willing to work with you and willing to try to help you. I do not know why, but in the medical community, that seems to be a large problem with those people. This is problem that is growing in large numbers these days.
Many of us here on the forum have undergone many of the procedure routine, some of us it has helped and some it hasn't. It can be a real hit and miss type thing. I have done several of the injection type things, including having the R/F done on both my neck and back. It helped my neck pain incredibly and it also got rid of the soft balls that had been under my shoulder blades for years that no one could ever get rid of. I can't count the number of drs, chiropractors or physical therapist that tried, all without success. It did help my lower back pain for about 6 months and then it returned with vengence. We entertained the idea of doing it again, but my ins would not approve it. Instead we did several rounds of trigger point injections and that seemed to calm things down a bit. The bad part is all of this stuff is temporary, like putting a bandaide on it. But, sometimes if we are desparate enough, and many of us are, we are willing to try pretty much anything, I know I was. I was at the point if my dr had said go jump out that window over there it will cure everything, I may have really given it some serious thought. lol. Thats pure desperation.
I do hope you will keep posting and let us know how you are doing.
