For the past year and a half I have been suffering from back pain, and headaches. My headaches are so bad, that before I went to the chiropractor, I would have to sit in the dark all day. It was also so bad that at times I would forget where I was and even had problems remembering my name. Since then I have much improved. Although I still suffer from periods of what has been deemed 'Mental fog'. My chiropractor says that he sees maybe 4 people who suffers as I do. I am a rarity.
Now, apparently chiropractors cannot give prescript
ions, which is too bad since I saw him 44 times last year, yes FORTY FOUR.
My doctor has sent me to a neurologist who sees no reason for my problems-- who also ordered a CAT and a MRI- again with no problems
My chiropractor claims I have more muscle tension than muscle bound pro athletes, an says that whenever he sees me (usually), my back is way out. (im 98 pounds and 5'4")
A while ago, I was given a drug called Ratio-Tecnal as a painkiller after some surgery-- it provided little 'pain' relief for its intended purpose. It was the most amazing drug I have ever experienced. Not only would it clear my mental fog within 30 minutes, it would also stop any back pain I had for days at a time. One little pill would keep me away from the chiropractor for 4 days+, when I had already had my mental fog preparing an appointment. When I was on it daily, I went nearly a month without seeing him!!! Something I had never done. I only went back because I had no more of the drug.
My doctor doesnt want to give me this drug, how do I convince him that I need this. Not only for my sanity, but for my wallet!!! Im not asking for Oxycodone or anything like that i dont see the problem.
