Well I stopped with the doctors at Doctor number 22. Everyone of them including ND's and I have had my case reviewed by a panel of 3000 of them and even had it turned down by the Cleveland Clinic Second Opinion Program as they said they think I have tried everything one can try to fix a messed up back do I have to say I dont put much faith into what any Doctors tell me anymore. I went to a neurolgist and he took 18 viles of blood to see why my energy is shot and his professional diagnoses was that I should go on anti depressants and anti seizure medications one of which had the side effect of DEATH! Flat out will kill you. I have to say, I bought into their own BS as I had been to a good dozen doctors by then and at the start they are all the same. They take an hour to listen to your story and then they look you square in the eye and say, dont worry dude, we got this. We will help. You are going to be alright. Then give them a few weeks, month whatever it is they need to finish their myopic view of what they think they can do to help and then the hand goes right back on the sholder and I have had this happen 22 times, they look you square in the eye and say, I am sorry, you are the strangest case I have ever had. There is no more I can do for you, good bye and try and not give up hope but there is nothing more I can do for you. I have heard it so many times I can repeat it and every doctor I have met when they give me the first line I just say right back instantly, no, you are not going to do anything for me actually but it is worth trying. My back pain shot up through either side of the spine so it is not the spine that hurts but it is like nerve damage or something shooting up and out around the ribs near the T4 and neck for me so I thought hmmm neurologist, he might be the way to go. I spent an hour with him and he said the same thing. Took the blood and when the blood work came back he said few issues here and there but the answers are anti seizure and anti depresants. I said well I dont have seizures and I am not really so depressed so if that is all you have to offer then I will say you are kind of useless but thanks for trying. I can remember walking out that door on about doctor number 15 or so thinking bum nerves in my back was the issue and then it hit me on the way down the stairs, if this wing nut who is a neurologist can not come up with a solution for my back thinking nerves were my problem then I am literally screwed with no one left to turn to. That was my most disheartening thing I have probably heard but honestly, each one of those hands on the shoulders at the end saying you are in the 1% I can not cure, they all were a small kick in the crotch over time so I dont really listen to Doctors anymore as they are never going to help me.
