Hypermobility problems skyrocketed after Car Accident, can barely walk better than a penguin...help?
Posted , 2 users are following.
Okay so I'm 18 and have been diagnosed with hyper mobility, asthma,scoliosis, carpel tunnel VCD, and chronic joint pain. I got in a car wreck April 2018 where I shattered my left ankle (lets just say my foot was not facing the right direction afterward) bruised up my left knee; got the Lis-Frank injury (tore a ligament in my right foot); bruised rightside of my ribs; and caused three tendons in my shoulder to completely tear.
Before the accident I was diagnosed with Hyper Mobility, Scoliosis, carpel tunnel, and VCD (a vocal cord disorder) and had been in physical therapy for about six months trying to tighten the tendons in my knees and shoulders. Before the accident I could still run and whatever, but now I can hardly walk better than a drunk penguin (cause I have a heavy limp favoring my left side),** can't jump higher than an inch of the ground without hurting my ankle, and can't run or even fast walk without my ankle groaning under my weight (mind you I'm only 135 lbs) and it along with my knee, likes to give out on me.
Its getting to the point where** I'm pinned at home unless I bring a wheelchair with me** and am unable to sit or stand for long periods of time, preventing me from really working.
I'm nearing a full year since the last of my three ankle surgeries, foot surgery, and shoulder surgery, but can hardly be mobile and do anything at all. I've seen multiple doctors and they just tell me to take more Naproxen (which I do, virtually every day twice a day to manage my pain levels) and that all of the X-rays and MRIs are perfectly normal.
