I have chronic pelvic pain and back pain from several surgeries, crohns disease and a severe 42 degree curve scoliosis. I saw my chiropractor last week and he had been to some convention and said with my severe scoliosis he can only adjust my L5. I was doing great before, taking less medications, I was flexible and sleeping better. Now I am back to 2 hours of sleep. My bf says I am back to rocking and moaning in my sleep and in obvious pain. I feel if my chiropractor does not go back to what he was doing there just is not a point. It's expensive and if it isn't helping forget it.
I also see a new pain doctor today that is doing shots if sarapin in my back and pelvis and actually my perennial wall and rectum..sounds painful I know but I will do anything to stop this cycle of pain. Is anyone familiar with sarapin? What has been your experience with chiropractors? Any feedback is appreciated.

I have not had any success with chiropractors as of now. They can do wonders for my back or SI joints for a short time, but that can cause my pelvic issues to flare big time. After the last time, I just stopped paying for it.

I am anxious to hear how the sarapin works for you. I think we have some similar issues, and I would love to try anything that could help stop the misery using my abdomen muscles, bowel movements, or using the bathroom at all creates.

Praying for you. I hope you get some positive feedback too, and that the sleepless nights become less. Too many can really take a toll on your body and ability to cope.

Hey Monty's mom,
Good day,
I went to the chiropractor who I told him how bad I felt. He went ahead and did the adjustment that made me feel better and he said I was completely out of alignment, but after the adjustment I felt soo much better and he moved my adjustments back to twice a week. Then I went to the pain doctor..i did the shots of sarapin with a mixture of lidocaine,menthol and vitamins including b. He did my whole back and all around my tailbone. He said we would do the other shots at a later time. But wow, I felt so weird my butt was numb when I first left his office .., it was funny. For now I am am a little sore from the shots so I do not know if they have helped but will let you know,..take a minute and look up sarapin, it's rather interesting..

        Hello Lasardo!
 
              I happened to come across a new product called "Somnapure"...supposed to be an all natural product, and is an OTC.
 
       Take a moment to look it up, as it may benifit you,..... and so many others, having a difficult time sleeping. I don't know anything about it, and do not have any personal experience with it....so if you try it, and there is some success with it...please let the members know about your results.
 
     I have been in the same shoes as you, with sleepless nights...and still do at times, so I understand the desperation you have on this topic.
 
    As always it's probably best to inform your Dr. that your wanting to try it.
 
       Take care, and have a great "Holiday!"
