I'm not really sure where to begin but I have always had bad headaches and back pain. Since I was a little girl but I was never brought to a chiropractor. Eventually I just came to accept that that must be how all people live and it's just normal.
I had a son in August of '07 and since then the pain was taking more and more out of me. I went to the doctor countless times with complaints like bad sleeping, chest pain, and just this generalized pain all over I couldn't explain. Every time all the tests came back fine and I was getting very frustrated and depressed.
Having never been to a chiropractor it hadn't come to mind. Then one day it just came to me so I went to the chiropractor the next day. I found I had completely lost the forward curve in my neck, my second vertebra was twisted out of place, my last disc was completely slipped, my spine curved left causing my right hip to be higher and that my left leg is 10 mm longer than my right leg!I don't know a whole lot about this field but I think that pretty well explains the pain is not normal.
You can't imagine how relieved I am to know there is a way to fix the pain. I have been going to the chiropractor since i found out about a week ago; but the kick in the butt is my insurance will be canceled June 1 and so whatever pain is still there will stay until I get insurance again. I am optimistic though because now I know this is not something that I "just have to live with!" - Ashley
