new diagnoses, not back related

I have gone to the Primary, Osteopath, Spine Specialist, PT, and Neurosurgeon. I have had every treatment available short of surgery.

My ligaments are tightened up from the Prolo and the PT put me back in place yesterday. I still hurt. My MRI's show arthritis in the L4, but once I took care of the ligaments, the arthritis is not progressing. I have no pain in the L4.

So, I went in to see a PT/ Chiroprator. He said that I am in perfect balance, good muscle tone, and sees no reason for the pain. He said that I have referred pain. okay. He sent me to the GYN. This is so out of left field, but this is the whole body approach. He determined that it was fibroids that were causing referred pain using the same Neuropathways. Who would have thought?

He said that most Orthos look at the spine and that is all that they know. The go in and fix what they think is causing the problems. But, mine stumped the PT/Chiro. Everything looked good. Who would have thought to look at the pelvic region and fibroids. So, now I am off to get them removed and see if that relieves the pressure on the back and the referred pain.

He stated that once the ligaments were healed (the SI/pelvic ligament being the strongest ligament in the body), and the pain still remained, and the MRI was good, that the doctors should always refer a patient out to look at the pelvic region as it could be female problems, gall bladder, etc. He thought that it was an injustice on the part of any doctor not to do a whole body work up. He even pointed out that a back problem could be as simple as how you stand, walk, sit, or the way that you carry yourself.

So, if you have pain, and you are not sure of surgery and your discs are asymptomatic, ask to be referred back to someone who can check out what else in your body could be causing your pain.

Wow, you and your husband are quite the pair. Your story is very interesting. I just want to say good luck having them removed, I hope it eliminates pain and any other possibilities. Take care. Kristy.
