as i paste this and make a new blog, i see that the last blog i wrote was on january 6th asking for any help/advice because of my horrible stomach issues... and now i write this!
when i was 13 (almost 20 yrs ago) i was in a car accident... i was in the back passenger seat and when the car hit, i was like a cat with my fast reflexes... and i put my hands up to avoid hitting my face on the back of the headrest.
i thought all these years with my bad neck/shoulder pain, that it was me that created the problem... maybe had i not done that, i wouldn't have my pain. but i found out that at age 13, your body isn't fully developed and so it caused issues.
when i was about 20 my stomach started to hurt bad with everything i ate and drank.
fast forward to last year... shoulder/neck pain off and on... not fun! :(
and this year... i was doing good with working out, but my sides jobs (tutoring & baking) got in the way, and when i decided it was time to get back to working out. there goes my neck and shoulder again :( it was probably one of the worse pains i've had...
if i hadn't gone to the dentist... i wouldn't have found out this info... being a new patient they asked me info on my health. one was about my cervical problems. well i looked down and said well... HAHAHA and the assistant said, no upper cervical is your neck area. EMBARRASSING! hahaha i laughed so hard. needless to say she recommended me to an upper cervical chiropractor...
i immediately canceled my regular chiro appt and scheduled with the new guy.
i got in that same week. he took xrays and saw that i had neck damage... and told me that once he corrected this, i'd see an improvement with my ibs and my menstrual cramps.
he is a different kind of chiropractor... he only adjusts the bone in my neck. if u can believe it, and i've told him. my stomach problems have gone away at least 95%!!!!!
i used to have bad stomach issues... all the things u can think of... and now it's amazingly better...
my cramps haven't really gone away, i'm on the pill also... but he said in time it would all get better.
but not only is my neck better, but my stomach!!!
if anyone has been injured and can see a chiropractor... specifically an upper cervical chiro...I RECOMMEND IT 100%!!
good luck to you all, i know what it's like and although the ibs issues aren't completely gone... i couldn't be happier... i can eat at a friends, eat out... and not worry about having to rush to the restroom.
so go out and find yourself an upper cervical chiropractor today!!!
(sorry this was long but i tried to keep it interesting and entertaining :) )
