As a child I was diagnosed with mild scoliosis. In 1995 I had a breast reduction which medicaid paid for....I gave birth to my 1st child that same year. After the birth of my 2nd in 1997 I saw an ortho about lower back pain. He said it was a stress fracter in lower vertebrae..... it would heal. After baby #4 I had repair surgery on my ankle after breaking it in 3 places. The back pain has continued. In total I had 6 children and pain got worse with each pegnancy. In between all of this I was hit with multiple incidedents of " wry neck" (torticollis). Between 2006 and 2008 I balloned to nearly 400lbs ( I've lost 140 lbs since then). After multiple ER visits, xrays and MRI I have been given various diagnosis.....bone spurs, arthritis and recently I'm just fat.. I had a doctor that finally heard me. She suggested nerve damage. Then I had to move. After a year of minimal pain I could finally function. New doctor took me off all pain meds and said lose weight. Well I've gained 15lbs back in just 2weeks :/. I've attempted keeping a pain diary and have noticed other things going on as well. Most recent episode had me in a standing fetal position shaking as my entire body shook. I don't sleep much, have to rely on kids to take care of the house( no easy feat mind you) and my lack of being able to sleep is causing issues between husband and I. Feeling defeated by mybody and my doctors.
