Not a good back day. So far I've seen 3 different doctors in 3 different cities. All anyone wants to do anymore is write you a script for pain medicine and send you to therapy. NOTICE..........pain meds aren't working and therapy is not working. My therapist will not see me anymore because my pain is getting worse, not better until I see my doctor. I'm going to see one more doctor next week, and if he wants to write a script, I'm done, no more doctors. I will continue to live a miserable life. I want to be fixed, not cover up the pain. With today's technology I just don't understand. When you constantly hurt, you have limited movement at times and have to struggle to wipe your butt, something is seriously wrong. Sorry, rant over.

Sorry to hear that, hang in there. Have you thought about seeing a chiropractor for another opinion?

You gotta find the RIGHT doctor. Try and find a list of specialists for your issue, then cross reference with sports medicine Dr's and references.

Had the same horrible ride until I found a good dr. "your too young to be a crippled old man. Bad news is we have to do surgery, good news is that We can fix it." Life changer.

If I had stayed with the first 3 Dr's I would either be a junkie or dead from all the meds they wanted me to take.

Same thing happened with my mom. She went to numerous doctors before she found "the one". Doctors are just like any other profession. They are not all great at what they do. They all don't put in the same effort to make themselves great or even good. Some of them are even lousy at what they do. I think it's human nature to want to trust doctors and believe in them, but just because they have a diploma from medical school doesn't mean they are a good doctor.

rabbit hunter - keep looking around and hopefully you'll find one that can help with your problems. My mom became very depressed with her pain and wanted to give up at times, but she kept trying new doctors and new things. I also think that sometimes a person just can't be fixed 100% no matter how good of a doctor they have. Believe it or not, but one thing that really helped my mom's pain was switching to one of those Sleep Number beds.

this is the first thing I thought of. I've heard of chiropractors doing wonders to some people. Do some research and find a good one. Best of luck and hope you feel better soon.

I started out with chiropractors, that kept me mobile but did nothing for the pain. Then I went to Memphis to the Campbell's Clinic, had MRI and Xrays. He sent to therapy and wrote me a script. Then he sent me to a rheumatologist, more scripts and therapy. I then went to Nashville to a back surgeon, more scripts and therapy. I have been told, L4 & L5 disc have degenerated to almost nothing exposing the nerves, L3 is bulging and have arthritis of the spine. When I decided to give up, my therapist ask me to see one more doctor, someone she recommends.

Good Advice from Carlos and Cat.

I am not sure how far you live from Sevierville, but I will be happy to give my opinion & suggestions, if any. Let me know if I can help anyway.
