Well...I received bad news from my chiro yesterday.
As a kid I had minor scoliosis...we did new x-rays to
see how I've progressed (especially after all these
car accidents)...I am now in stage II of major
scoliosis. The point of "no return". I have a reflux
of 80 degrees....when it hits 100 I will have to have
surgery and get pins and stuff in the back to
straighten the spine. This is apparently what is
causing my diaphragm pressure. The spine is pushing
my lungs onto the rib cage. My neck is even worse.
showing breakdown and deteriation. Possible reason to
why I have problems swallowing. I may have to check
into a brace for now. The only thing I can do is try
to prevent it from hitting 100 so I can avoid surgery.
With the pain I feel all over...I don't even care
anymore. I never know if it's hernia, adhesions, or
back-shoulder and neck probs. It's just a constant
achy feeling everywhere. I was so sick last night.
And feeling ill today, too. Pushed up my appt. with
the PCP to try to get more tests done before my
insurance runs out. Test for acid damage, and
blockage in swallowing. Colette, you were talking
about the chiro to me in an e-mail...my diagnosis
should let you know that I completely encourage you to
go. Every little part plays an important factor in
our over all well-being. Chiro's are not quacks.
There is a legitimacy to their work. Kinesiology has
been known to help with some bowel problems. An
incorrect spine can increase your difficulties to
pass. Maybe it "could" help you. And yes, call the
OBGYN doc. and try to push up GI...do everything you
said. And get a pcp in it, too. The more docs you
have the better chance you'll get of one person
listening to you. If you deal with one doc at a time
and he is not attentive...it'll take longer for you to
find relief. Schedule them all. I find it intersting
how every thing is crossing over. Anorexia can affect
your bones, your GI tract, and OBGYN factors.
Scoliosis is a break down of tissue and muscles
causing weakening of the spine...isn't an adhesion a
tissue? Funny huh? Please take care of yourself.
