First time poster here, would first like to say hello to all, hope everybody is having a good day.
A bit of background, i hurt my back last Feb2014 in an accident at work, hospital said I had a bulging disc L2/3… no scans were taken.
Was off work for 3 months before I started another job. During this time i had acute back pain etc low mobility. I was on meds for the pain and went to work as soon as I was able.
Before I had back issue i have been bothered by a few little issues which i’d been to see the Dr about but this was always kind of overlooked or not looked into…
The issues were - none visable vibrations/tremors in feet and calfs, Dr said I had RLS, so i was ok, its never been painful just bothersome and more notable when lying down or resting.
Very sore ribs or should I say muscles in between ribs cage, this is notable when in bed try to sleep on side, had bloods taken for inflamation etc… test results back negative… no follow up.
Frequent Migraines - again no real help other than maybe to put me on beta blockers if they get more frequent which havn’t
Pain on or in scalp this is not very frequent put comes and goes is very sharp and feels like its on the scalp not inside. Again Dr a bit puzzle - no action taken.
Ok after the accident and the year up to now … this have progressed i have seen lots of specialist been to Physio, MKS cats, DR’s, Core Stability classes… Still no scans
Finally been refered to see a Neuro middle of July only 3 weeks left… Sometimes I have been feeling im going round the twist… then I lie still and listen to the body … no im not going mad … something is wrong …

Sorry for the length … but I feel a bit lonely sometimes and its taken me all this time to finally talk to someone other than my wife about these issues. I take Tramadol 800mg a day, paracetamol, ibuprofen daily, fluxotine, have issues sleeping… im at my wits end… anybody else been in the same situation?
