    Chronic back pain

    I am a 58 year old female that has had two back surgeries. The first was in 2004 with a ruptured L3 - L4 disc. The second surgery was in 2016 and they fused L3 - L4 - L5 due to disc herniation. I have been in constant pain since the fall of 2003. Nothing I have tried has helped. I've been on most of the pain pills and they didn't do anything to relieve the pain, just made me not care as much. I'm really tired of being in pain all the time and not able to do what I want because of the....

    Pain radiating from right lower back to foot

    In March of this year, I fell and fractured my left knee and femur. A few weeks after the surgery, my lower back started to hurt and by the end of the day, I couldn’t bend over. I assumed the muscles were weak and pt would help. For the past 6 weeks, I have been having excruciating pain starting in my low back on the right side and all the way down to my foot. The pain will get so bad that I can’t get out of bed and the only “comfortable” position is lying on my left side with a pillow in between....

    CPS closed

    I have been going to CPS for 6 months and all of the sudden they close their doors. I have read online about how the owner is caught up in some fraud with Medicare so it makes sense. I was prescribed my typical medication for the month I last went in one in advance which has become a common thing I guess. With the changes in laws the pharmacist has to get ahold of the prescribing doctor before filling the whole prescription and can give me only a partial but it will void the rest of the medication....

    Concerned

    I had an injection in my neck yesterday. I accidently moved during the injection because of the pain. I am now experiencing a squishy sound in my neck whenever I move, a severe headache, nausea, a stiff neck. What could be happening? After the injection, I felt extreme numbness and tingling throughout my body.

    Severe Back/Neck Pain for 17 Y/O

    Hey, I'm a 17 year old with major back pain, right in the middle right side, and when I put my head down, the pain is more intense, when I put my head back, there's pain in the back part of my neck and upper back. I've been to physical therapy for 5 months, had multiple deep tissue massages, dry-needling, and nothing worked at all. I also had an MRI done, showing that nothing's wrong. But one doctor told me that it's a "muscular" issue but wasn't told any solution....

    Right scapula bursitis??

    Hi, Got rear ended years back and got a delayed painful neck because of it. My right hand was on the gear shift, too, and I'm wondering if it jacked my shoulder/scapula area up somehow. I'm constantly leaning my head to the left to try and crack my neck. My head jerks on its own sometimes. The right side of my brain bothers me. My right trapezius? will get really tense and the pain or stress seems to originate from the right shoulder blade area. Suggestions?

    Broken toe

    I am 13 yo and I was riding a pedalgo cart and almost crashed but I put my feet down to stop myself (Fred flinstone style:p) and scraped a huge chunk of skin off the tip of my big toe . We cleaned it out and bandaged it but it's been 13 days and the cut is healed but my toe is swollen and a little bruised and still hurts really bad (can't put weight on it) could it be broken???

    Three spine surgeries and left testicle pain... Should I worry or is my back possibly to blame for the testicle pain that im not used too

    I'm a 30 year old man, a 100% disabled vet that has had three spine surgeries in under a year. We'll that was when I was 27. I have a level 2 fusion L4 L5. Fast forward to now I feel like I'm getting kicked right on my left testicle. It comes and goes. I go to a doctor monthly. My appointment will be coming up soon. My question is, how possible is it that I'm just having worsen chronic pain, or should I worry?
