Does it just get HARDER or MORE PAINFUL?
I was doing SO WELL on my EPISODE FREE PROGRAM.SIX MONTHS AND NO EPISODES!
THEN BOOM one recent day I got up from a nap and started to prep dinner and the eyes went at the stove…..I got myself to a mirror (one of four mirrors in my kitchen) to see if I could see anything happening with my pupils.
The headache arrived for the rest of the night.
AUGUST 26 th a Wednesday I saw my chiropractor and told him what had happened.He adjusted me and we were both bummed.This time the adjustment hurt they never hurt………and hurt is the wrong word.The body felt something.I had a BIG EPISODE THAT AFTERNOON.Eyes went over 10 minutes and I couldn’t walk.What was depressing to me AGAIN was the fact I have never had an EPISODE AFTER I HAVE SEEN THE CHIROPRACTOR!
The ITALIAN wanted me to write my MEDICAL DOCTOR…………I SCREAMED NO back at him!The idea of bringing those people back into my LIFE was down right DEPRESSING.
I went back on my word and wrote her the next day.As I had done one of those LIFE LINE SCREENING Tests……….
I had the results which they tell you to share with your doctor.And since two things needed further investigation I wrote.After telling her about the bone density and the blood flow in my left leg I mentioned the EPISODES had come back and that maybe I should see an ORTHOPEDIC doctor who could take an X-ray of my neck as my neck lately is so sore.
Here is her reply…….I don’t know what the 0.832 is referring to
Sorry to hear about the episodes
I ordered an xray of the neck for you – you can come in to the radiology department during business hours to get this done
” I DON’T KNOW WHAT THE 0.832 is referring too?”
Nothing about seeing an Orthopedic but I got an X-ray!
Please excuse my poor taste in WORDS but if you have been with me from the BEGINNING YOU GET IT!
Below is what they found out about my neck……..
** FINDINGS **:
“Sheila body heights are maintained. There is grade 1 anterolisthesis of C4 on C5 and C5 on C6. Facets are normally aligned. There is moderate loss of disc height at C5-6. There is moderate loss of disc height at C7-T1. There is moderate left facet arthropathy at C3-4 and moderate right facet arthropathy at C4-5. Prevertebral soft tissues are normal.
I have ordered an MRI to look at the bones and blood vessels more closely
Please book online through the link I sent you.”
WELL NOW I HAVE SOMETHING WRONG AND THEY MOVE FAST AS ITS WITHIN THEIR BOX!
THE NEXT DAY I WAS GIVEN AN MRI.
Here is my doctors response to me.
Your MRI shows arthritis in the spine but nothing abnormal with the blood vessels or spinal cord. The arthritis would cause pain in the neck possibly radiating down your arms but it would not cause the dizzy spells you are having:
1. No significant cervical spinal canal narrowing or cord compression. No suspicious abnormal enhancement is seen. Specifically, the C1/2 level appears unremarkable.
2. C-spine DJD is as described. This includes moderate left C3/4 foraminal narrowing.
If you feel the chiropractic work helped in the past you may follow up with him as you see fit
Please let me know if you have questions. Thank you
First off I have NEVER USED THE WORDS DIZZY SPELLS to describe MY EPISODES.THAT is NOT WHAT HAPPENS TO ME…….I bet you ALL can remember……..I LOSE MY VISION NOT A BLACK OUT BUT I CANNOT FOCUS AND THEN I FEEL LIKE I WILL PASS OUT.THIS LASTS FROM 2 MINUTES TO 10 minutes and comes with ABSOLUTELY NO WARNING!
At the end of the 4 year duration of having these EPISODES they were coming about every 4 days.
I tell you about them as YOU ALL helped me so much!THANK YOU!
Plus its a good way for me to keep track of what was.
