So first I want to say that all of the collective knowledge on this site amazes me.
Now my issue, well one of them, lol.
I sprained my thoracic and lumbar in a work related accident. This was over a year ago... I have had X-rays and mris and they show slight bulging discs in a few areas nothing big.
I am still able to pinpoint the exact spot on my spine at L-2 of tenderness and at times its a weird almost itch or healing feeling right at that point. Still daily I have deep muscle pain, discomfort, and burning.
There is so clearly something happening there but why isn't it showing on imaging?? The Costcochrronditis has calmed now, ther weird tingling , stinging, sore then itching skin has calmed also. The esophageal spasms have subsided. So now and for the last two days it's solely been my back.
Can some of you tell me why the images don't show anything but yet the pain is not better! Remember it's been a year on workers comp with a number of failed attempts at returning to work..
I don't understand it and I feel like there is more happening as far as the skin and such... Argh, confusion settling in. And the stress I guess has my memory turning to jello.
