(Cullman Alabama USA)

I have medicaid which may make u stop reading as I chose to go to school and have several TBIs from car wrecks that aren't my fault and 2nd caused late on set symptoms so I have to retake biochemistry instrumental analysis and cal 2. I have tangential speech so apologize.

My pain doctor won't help me with anything other than SI joints and my discs starts at CA and go down minus a couple in the middle thoracic. I keep trying to get an injection in my neck and shoulder or where ever it's coming from the but it won't touch the pain of and the bottom of my shoulder blade area burns on the left and top of my shoulder; it shoots down but mainly tolerable except above my elbow which mixed with my left numb price area.

My ball and socket or SI joint on both sides but after SI injections felt relief just not where it was worse and sitting on a 32 oz Gatorade bottle edge in my car is the only relief I can get and I hate being in the car. I need to pop it I think and am so flexible no stretching exercises help my left calf and middle bottom of my left foot along with me price area on the left outer side went numb today with the worst pain so far.

And I have pain shooting into the right thumb and left thumb that are numb. I had a nerve root punctured in 2001 my 1st semester of college and lost complete use of my left leg and had no feeling but now from the knee down its mostly back just know sharpness only pressure for feeling and no reflexes along with my calf; it seems to be th left fibula side of my ankle on the top doing something and bottom.

Of my left foot has a place in the middle that's numb no one will help me because I don't have real insurance and she said I have too many problems and is a psycho is how I am assuming she has agreed to see me.

They keep saying SI BUT I've had pain in L5-S1 since I was 9 and am pretty sure it's that and my ball and socket joints and from nerve path pictures I've seen appears to be my c7ort1vertebrae making my shoulder the way it is.

I just need these two area to be helped now but she won't do anything but sacroiliac I have tried to avoid auto correct but it's not working. Medicaid won't pay for a chiropractor she said or physical therapy I know PT isnt true as I now live in government housing with a bunch of people who didn't try to do something with their lives and know someone near me who goes but do you know about chiropractic stuff and if so can u hep me find someone in my area that is income based or takes medicaid or does charity.

I am having thought of not being able to live if it's like this and desperately need someone to help me as I don't want to die and have a 15 year old son but he says all I do is lay in bed but if I could walk or move my arms without pain then I could be a better mother. No one does but I keep asking hoping someone will help me as I help people all the time and don't expect help in return for that but would love to not have it blow up in my face one day but just saying I don't help people to get help from others I just figure there's maybe someone out there like me who will help.

Hello Ashley,
I live in a different continent, and don't know any chiropractors in Cullman, I'm afraid. Perhaps addressing this to the Alabama chiropractic association might help. I'm sure there's someone who would take on your case.

Certainly lying in bed will only worsen things. At chiropractic help in the navigation bar you'll find some gentle exercises for the lower back; that would be a good start.

If you can't walk, is there any possibility of a swimming pool?

I hope this contributes.
