Went to an osteopath today
I mentioned in a previous post that I made an appt. to see an osteopath. For the last 5 years I have been treated exclusively for my neck issues and muscle spasms from my upper body guarding my neck. I fell on the ice very hard in 2000 and had to go to therapy for hurting my sacrum. TO make a long story short, my body is totally stuck at my sacral area. I have gotten alot of feedback from massage therapists and chiropractors that I am totally out of balance. You can even see it visually, that my right side is higher than my left. Every MD I ever saw would not listen to me about the fact that I fell on the ice. I am willing to bet it totally had to do with my neck problem in the first place. The osteopath examined me and said I was utterly stuck and that no wonder I could never get rid of my spasms. I was always getting the band aid approach, never getting to the cause. So annoying. I am trying to work the anger I have at the medical establishment. (mostly MDs.) This Dr. thinks she can really help me, but I have to let more time go by to let the fusion heal. She did a couple of small things to me today (hands on) and I have to say that whatever she did made me feel better.
For those of you ladies who are in my age bracket (51), she also took some blood to see where I am in the ole menopause phase. Then if I need some hormonal assistance, we will go the bio-identical hormone route (something regular MDs never want to even try doing...grrr..), rather than the synthetic hormone route, which is out of the question, as far as I am concerned. Anyway, I think I am finally getting to the bottom of things, after 5 years of hell. Wish me luck!
