    Kaisers making patients suffer

    Hello, I was wandering how all the kaiser patients are doing after being refused pain management care? In the valley near fresno, ca, its finally affecting us. The older posts I saw were 4 to 7 yrs old. How did affected patients survive this terrible dis service? Did you pay cash for a private Dr, find a pain solution, demand a diagnosis, or did you lose your job and are stuck on the couch in agony? If you dont want to read all this, skip to last paragraph for your input, please. I find it ironic....
  • Do I have Ankylosing Spondylitis?

    I am a 28 year old female. I started to experience back and joint pains about 2 years ago, when I started weightlifting. The pain first occurred on my right shoulder, and then my mid/lower back. Since the pain wasn't that bad earlier, I was't really bothered with it. It soon turned into a very nagging form of pain, which resulted in me stopping the gym. Over the past few months, I have been doing jobs that involve some heavy lifting. The pain shows back again in the same spots, and has steadily....

    Really bad lower back pain that doesn't subside at all

    Hi, I have been having a really bad lower back for almost a month now. It started when I was on a 12 hour / day project from the past two months (which just ended last week). I still have the back pain though, and it seems like it has got worse. I am a 35 year old female. I have been to a couple of physiotherapy sessions, but it didn't help at all. I am in agony, and this pain doesn't seem to subside. I can't be on painkillers all the time. I am also deficient in Vitamin D; maybe that's....

    Problems with 5G and Medical Implants???

    Does anyone know if medical implants, especially the new back pain implanted nerve simulator, have been checked against 5G radiation. As you may or may not know, 5G towers are spaced at a maximum of 500ft. and can be as close as 200ft. They emit mass amounts of high frequency radiation, supposedly not harmful to humans, even though it is used as a weapon by the military and for crowd control by the authorities. Houses have caught fire when it was turned on near ones with more than one router in them....

    Reoccurring sharp lower back pain at 18 yrs old

    Hi :) so I’ve been having this sharp pain in my lower back that shows up typically once a month and lasts 1-2 days. I’m 18 years old and have done sports all my life but currently have not done any since 4 months ago. Once the pain starts, I can feel it when I’m laying down, sitting, walking, or bend my back forwards or backwards. And I will occasionally have surges of pain during the time I’m experiencing the pain. I have tried Tylenol, ibuprofen, icing, heating, stretches, and bio freeze; but nothing....
