In Nov 2010, I told my husband, I couldn't stand being in pain anymore, I was going to the dr and get FIXED before 2011 trail riding started. In Dec 2010, I was told I had fibermyalgia and given Savella and Ambien. IN January 2011, after no relieve, I was given Cymbalta, Ambien and melaxicom(?). In Feb, they sent me to physical therapy and xrays for my knees, ft and hands. In either March or April, I was given Flexor and Tramadol. Finally in May, the dr ordered an MRI for my back. The insurance denied it...had to go to 12 sessions of PT first, after 6, the therapist told me NOT to come back until I went back to my dr and told her it wasn't helping. She got the insurance to OK the MRI. I had 2 compression fractures, spinal stenosis, bone spurs, bulged discs and arthritis. ON June 1st, I got a call from a trailer dealer telling me my new LQ Sundowner was in, I told them I'd pick it up the next afternoon as soon as I got done seeing the ortho dr in the AM. The dr told me I shouldn't ride, But then gave me a brace and told me to only walk. Never got to go camping with the trailer, I'd sleep in it, in the yard. The end of July, they told me I could ride more. My fellow up appt in Aug, I was in such pain again I couldn't set by the time I drove to the dr. In Sept, made arrangement for back surgery (kyphoplasty) in Oct. In Nov, I could ride again, take it easy, in Dec, I was told I was as good as I was gonna get, and would only get worse as I got older. Started this yr, in such pain I couldn't hold my head up with out pain, neuropothy in my ft (after the surgery) and thinking I'd have to sell horses and everything related to doing anything with them. On Jan 18th on the advice of a massage therapist (I feel against my family dr and the surgeon's better judgement), I went to a chiroractor. I've been riding and I'm making plans to go camping. I feel she gave me my life back. BUT she's not a snapper, cracker at least not with me....she does ultra sound, massage, electric stim, etc... I started out 2x/wk, then 1/wk, every 2 wks and am going to try every 3 wks, but after a 4 hr ride on Sunday, I might rethink that. Good luck, I hope if you decide to see one, they can help you. By the way, my insurance would only pay for the first 6 visits. The chiropractor is only charging me my copay yet, so if your insurance won't cover your visits, check and see if one will work with what you can afford. Sorry this is so long, but I wanted you to know if one (the right one) can get me feeling better, to be hopeful you can get there, too.
