Three Cat Accidents....Permanently Disabled...now what

Posted , 3 users are following.

ASKING FOR ANY SUGGESTIONS ON ANY PART OF MY ISSUES PLEASE

I've been in 3 car accidents (none my fault) but they have left me with 7 herniated discs both cervical and lumbar, permanent nerve damage, loss of reflexes, degenerative disc disease, dvt from the neuropathy, massive edema, major migraines, radiculopathy (sp), muscle spams and now tremors, restless leg syndrome, insomnia from pain, and now fibromyalgia. I've done epidurals they don't work, I've tried physical therapy, I've had a facet block which didn't last as long as it was suppose to so not considered successful, was told I'm not considered a candidate for fusion surgery, and I take 16 medications daily including one for my acid reflux I developed from taking so many medications. My medications are getting too expensive 3 of them are $900 a month and i still have 13 more meds to pay for each month. One of these is Savella for the fibromyalgia. I've had almost every adverse reaction possible when I told my doctor I wanted to switch they just lowered the dose.....

I'm happy to share more of anyone had questions that may help pinpoint a better response.

PLEASE HELP ME! Does anyone have any suggestions to try for any of my issues. I can't image the rest of my life being like this.

    I take a multivitamin, complex b complete, niacin, folic acid, biotin (separately also for thinning hair), calcium with vitamin d, vitamin d2, and protein (around 50g a day). No change. And yes I'm tired on top of the other symptoms. I feel like I'm 60 instead of 32.

      All my supplements are prescription quality and strength. My vitamin d is 50,000iu every other day my multi also has all the others in it but i take an extra 1200 of b12 onto of that in the complete b complex. My calcium is 2000mg extra per day. I tried shark cartilage and glucosamine and chondroitin but with my GERD all I did was get really nauseated, so I discontinued those.

      For sure we must follow our Doctor because each patient has a different health reality.

      The important is to have a doctor orientation as we both have.

      As I can see you are in UK and with the difference of time here in US is 1:20 am. biggrin

      I am prepared to have a good night!

      Hi KMmva,how are your symptoms today?

      You are right when you say it takes some time to find the right approach, dosage of medicines, exercises, diet, etc, etc to adjust our system to the issues we have regarding the differen aspects of our health condition!

      Reading here the Forums we see it!

      We are not alone though - at this same moment there so many people people going through the same suffering and renewing their Hope fir a better tomorrow.

      Take care.
