I don't really have a story like that, but I do have a story that involves me being injured (I later discovered it was from riding) and going to the chiropractor.
Last July, while working as a summer camp like I have sinxe 2007, I got this headache that lasted a few days and then started getting annoying and painful. It started on Sunday and by Thursday, I didn't want to get out of bed because moving made me feel sick. I did eventualy puke. I went to he ER because i couldn't wait 3 hours to have a regular appointment. They go mad and accused me of just having a migraine. They did do a CT scan amd gave me morphine ..which didn't help at all.
I ended up gettig picked up by my mom later that day because I coukdn't drive. I went to the ER again at home. They thought I had cluster headaches. Nope. I said morphone didn't help and I was dizzy and wanted to sleep, so they gave me a shot of dilaudid, which, in injection form is 8x stronger than morphine. That sure worked! They gave me some painkillers and sent me back home. Oh, bythe way, the first ER gave me vicodin. Didn't help at all. I was still puking after the second ER trip and couldn't leave the darkness of my bedroom and soft pillow.
Eventually I went tothe ER again. They tried imitrex to see if I was a migraine also. Turns out I am allergic to that! I am now aware of what it feels like to be shot in the back of the head because it made my headache about 10x worse. I don't really remember it much because I wasn't really in control of my screaming and bawling. They shot me up with dilaudid again. Serious lifesaver. The nurse them suggested a chiropractor.
I go in the next day and he feels my neck and goes, "Have you been in a severe car accident?!" A vertebra in my neck twisted and cause my 2 week long massive headache. He cracked it and after I yelled "Holy helllll!" I was fine.
I went riding abot a week later and stopped really fast from a lope. When I bounced in my saddle, I felt my spine crunch. My brother was supposed to go to the chiro he next day, but decided he didn't want to, so I did. I told him my neck was jacked up from horseback riding. Hr said it's such a terrible sport for your back.
So..... From that whoke shindig, I found out I am allergic to Imitrex, went from weighing 115-120ish to 105lbs because I was too nauseous to eat, annnnnd I hate having any sort of headache anymore. That's my fun chiro story! Posted via Mobile Device
