|Damn that sounds awful, whadid you do to your back?|
|Still haven't found out. I've had three x-rays, CT and MRI to no avail but I had a tree dropped on me
(a full size tree, that is not an exaggeration) after it started and has continued to worsen since so
I'm sure that is somehow related. The new(er) pain in my back may just be referred pain from ulcers
I've developed from taking aleve on the daily b/c my primary physician won't prescribe me meds until
we find something, and/or from injured ribs from falling as a result of the seizures. At any rate,
it's no fun. Given me plenty of time to brush up on melee though.|
|If you have good insurance/financials - see professionals until you find someone competent enough. (I'm just assuming you live in the U.S. - which IMO has a ridiculously inadequate medical/insurance system in a lot of places)|
Otherwise.. I guess there's not really much you can do, with regular backpain I would've suggested moving more/sports/working out but given the nature of what you've got and the whole seizures thing Idk to which degree that would work.
|Thankfully my insurance is adequate, although bills for hospitalization/testing add up pretty fast and I'm hardly wealthy. I do live in the U.S., and god do I ever agree with you. Last seizure I had, my friend didn't know what to do and called an ambulance for me and I was not conscious again until I was on my way to a hospital (at which I was not covered). They proceeded to inform me that due to the presence of marijuana and opiates in my system they were going to write off that particular seizure as a result of drug abuse in spite of the fact that I had had seizures identical to that individual one and that I explained I was not a heavy user of either and was primarily using them to alleviate pain. I had been stretching regularly, at the very least, until the seizures started. But, yeah, with the pain stretching more across my body and my limited range of movement as a result of injuries there hasn't been much I could do to keep my muscles worked lately.|
|Yeah, there's really not much more I can realistically think of tbh. (Apart from going to another country to be treated which also only makes sense with the right financials, which - even compared to the ridiculously inflated medical costs in the U.S. - is still a "big" thing for most people)|
That actually sounds like neglecting their medical duties. Unfortunately those higher prices you guys have doesn't necessarily (or even often or on average) translate into better care. In that sense, best of luck.
|Much obliged. Here's hoping things start looking up. Currently waiting on results from an EEG.|
