    Severe stabbing chest (maybe heart) pains

    So, at least a month or two ago I have been having severe stabbing chest pains. During the first month I thought it was my heart, and I had a doctors THAT day and he said I possibly have Costochondritis. A week or two after he told me that I went to a hospital and they took X-rays and said it sounded like I have Costochondritis. I still didn’t believe it but there was nothing else I could really do. I called my doctor again to make another appointment for the same chest pain, he told me that with....

    Very Sharp Hip Pain

    I’ve had sharp hip pain for a month. Like, can’t get out of bed, gives out when I run, makes me walk with a funny limp kind of pain. I wake up in the morning and I can’t move my leg for a bit, and when I am able to stand I can’t support my weight without my leg buckling and giving out. I’ve tried ibuprofen but it doesn’t work well. It’s a constant sharp and cold pain that is 24/7 and I don’t know that to do. Any thoughts?

    Back Pain

    I hear so much about back pain and I had 4 failed operations until I went for one more consult. I’m glad I did because my spine was unstable. The only ones my surgeon will see are those with spinal instability. Which means you are in danger of paralysis. I don’t think you should have surgery unless the surgeon tells you that you need . It’s also a tough recovery but once you get through it it is worth it.

    Chronic Wrist Pain for Ten Months

    Last year, I started experiencing temporary wrist pain on the ulnar side of my right arm after using my wrist for long periods of time. The pain would go away after a while of inactivity, but after writing an essay in class by hand one day last December, the pain has never fully disappeared. I went to an orthopedic specialist where I was told I had tendinitis and that immobilization and occupational therapy would solve all of my problems. I started OT and did all of my exercises as I was told to....

    Living with chronic back, neck pain. NEUROPATHY, SLE, NARCOLEPSY, ATAXIA, ANXIETY ATTACKS. HOMEBOUND BUT NOT HELPLESS!

    Medications and an excellent Pain management Doctor saved my life. Yes I tried PT, steroid injections, chiropractors, and SURGERY. After 3 failed surgeries on neck and lower back, I gave up a normal life. Thank God for the pain management DOCTOR, he "listened to me" and we tried different meds. Now I am on meds that make the pain tolerable. I have an aide who assists me in my daily routine. Otherwise I my husband does everything for me. Being wheelchair and homebound can be depressing but....

    Back Pain

    I see that i'm not alone when it comes to back pain. I'm a 36 year old female who has been dealing with chronic back pain since 2010. I have a herniated disc (L5) which is pressing on my sciatic nerve. It has been a constant struggle every day. I've tried numerous things such as physical therapy, getting into water, steroid injections, muscle relaxers, and even prednisone. Nothing has helped. I've gone to the neurologist, but he could not give me a guarantee that I would be pain free....

    I had surgery on L5

    I, like you, tried everything possible before i had the surgery. That was 18 years ago and they told me i should not play tennis again. I started playing after 6 months and have been playing competitions since. I recommend the surgery. It has to be better now than 18 years ago. We take chances in life. Why not take a chance to have a better, painless life?
