My brother used to pull my shoulders and elbows out of socket when I was a tween and being bratty on road trips. The parents would just pull off the road, yank it back into socket and drive on.
Has anyone else had experience with not receiving treatment for joint injuries when they were children, still developing?
Most of my joints are still easily sprain/strained. I have had : Spinal Meningitis, chronic migraines, have a fused L4-5 from a freak fall, and my neck fused by itself. I have chronicI’m a lifelong headache sufferer, studying corporate health/fitness, acupressure and had a thriving therapeutic massage therapy practice in a past life.
I’m now disabled permanently, yet I don’t look sick! I can still dance and wiggle like a whirling dervish , only now it can take days to recover. I’ve lived with chronic muscular skeletal pain all my life. I’m wondering if it even matters at this age to pursue a diagnosis?!
I was on literally hundreds of different meds these last 30 years and got myself off 95% with my neurologists guidance ie: fentanyl patches, anti nausea meds, muscle relaxers, anti depressants, antipsychotics, you name it... they made me feel ill and my personality changed.
I’m not interested in taking anti inflammatory meds- - I would rather take Turmeric and Collagen protein powder in green tea. I’d rather manage pain without pharmaceuticals that constipate and have happy bowel health!
Eliminating sugar has helped, a ton. What are your experiences around sugar and GMO foods? Do they make the pain in your joints worse?
I finally found relatively few side effects using CBD, thc, ancient, ayuervedic blends of herbs and of course ice, heat, compression, elevation, mucho rest, acupuncture and tons of water when I am bedridden.
I’m praying y’all can share/shed some light on my questions Please help me out here.
