Hi there,I have a lot of problems with my back and neck. I believe it is hereditary because on my father's side of the family I have my father 2 cousins and an uncle who have the same issues. However I have been doing some research on different other medical problems I have been diagnosed with and honestly I believe that I have a rare disorder called Arachnoiditis. The only problem is my doctors have never looked for it in the 12 years I have had Degenerative Disc Disease, Herniated Discs, Spinal Stenosis, Bulged Disc, Herniated Disc in my Neck, and Arthritis in my Neck. This is because they have never done a MRI with Contrast. I am going to ask my primary doctor about it at my next appointment. I have so many medical conditions that I can't even remember them all. Thank You for Reading.
🤗 Hi Hinny,
Let me start by saying I’m sorry you have so many medical issues. I understand, really! As I too, have ALL of those that you have named and sadly, many, many more. Additionally, I do not know about the condition that you mentioned -that your doctor does not know about either, so I will have to look that up and see if there’s any relevance to my bodies condition? I hope u find answers too.
Since Covid-19 , in just 2 yrs, I’ve had a total of (5) surgeries! (2) within 8 days! Emergency Gall Bladder surgery= that was EZ!, then (4) back surgeries in total!
(3) (L4-S1) TRIPLE Spinal Fusions + a Spinal Cord Stimulator implanted last Nov ‘21, of which I have not YET, received any relief from the SCStim. 😟 however, I CAN stand now, bc of the (3) other back surgeries.
Drs. Said I “broke a titanium screw”!??! On the 2nd surgery, Hence, the 3rd Triple Spinal Fusion
But, I’m still in chronic pain and on pain reliever, “Nucynta” which does HELP, since I’m allergic to many typical pain pills 💊, I would give Nucynta a 👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽 if u haven’t tried it?
Also, I need (2) SI, replacement?
Injections have NOT helped, so both hips are also whack.
*A few other *FUN* conditions that I have:
*Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, *BiPolar 1*,
*Vitaligo, = no biggie
*CREPITUS=, old bones🥺, chronic crack & aches
(got that at age 9!!)
*Severe Sleep Apnea,
* Degenerative Disc Disease
*TRAUMATIC BRAIN 🧠 INJURY
AND THE ABSOLUTE WORST OF ALL OF THESE ISSUES,…
Yep, that damn,
Restless LIMB Syndrome kicks my ASS Every time!!I nearly EVERY /day/night! It can happen at ANY TIME?!!
I get 1-2 limbs vibing that “twitch” up to 10x/min!!
It does NOT hurt! Yet, I wish it did, bc then I could take a pain pill for it. Instead, my whole body/world is turned upside down! I can NOT Sit, Stand, Lay down, eat, read,
**I Can’t do ANYTHING,**
but allow my body to go thru its wicked convulsions In my limbs.
I take Mirapex, and have added a miracle drug, (Carba-Dopa-
LevoDopa) ( Parkinson’s Rx! )
—of course, my sleep Dr. Wants me OFF Carbo/Levo dopa—
That’s not gonna happen!!
It helps but does not stop or cure these Exhausting and violent kicks/punches from what feels like building energy
Within my body.
I will reiterate, of ALL of these Diseases/illness RLS is the absolute Worst!
I’ve had (6) in hospital Sleep studies. 6??!!,
Anyone out there Have RLS-violent kicks/punches??
I would GLADLY take Fibro, Back & Neck Surgeries, Traumatic Brain Injury, ADD, DDD, Hashimoto’s, Severe Sleep Apnea, just to rid my body of RLS! My Drs. Just Don’t Understand, how debilitating RLS truly is. 🙏 😥
All the women my family also had RLS, any words of wisdom??
