Aside from my Early Degenerative Disc Disease, I have an autoimmune condition called Mixed Connective Tissue Disease which is very similar to Lupus. Although I suffer from a long list of other symptoms, pain and swelling of the joints and tissues, are the worst. As of lately, my pain meds are not really helping, and my doctor is apprehensive about prescribing "narcotics" for pain. That's fine, but I asked for other options for treatment, only to be told that I don't have any. My doctor sucks, and I'm in the process of switching. To make a long story short, she told me that because there is no cure for MCTD, that my symptoms won't get much better, and in so many words, to deal with it.
Well while I was at Walmart the other day, "Fuller Life Chiropractics" were there. If you made a donation of $20 to the Children's Miracle Network, you could get a free visit, including x-rays. Well, I went to my appointment today, and I think this could really be just what I was looking for. Aside from the EDD, I learned that I have other spine problems. We went over the x-rays and treatment options, as well as my favorite, payment plans.
The doctor was very informative, he answered all of my questions, and I learned so much today. I knew the spine was important, but I didn't know just how much it affects the body as a whole. So I chose my payment plan, because chiropractic care is not included in my insurance, and I'm ready to see how it goes. I received a treatment today, and it was a little uncomfortable, well it scared me. Because he popped my neck and my back several times, and it was loud. But after it was over, I really felt a difference.
