Letter to Doctors 08/09/06

The following is a letter sent to a specialist 08/09/06, the pain specialist i met with to that date just didn't care. I was at my wits end and had no idea what to do to help myself, or for that matter any idea how to ease the pain I was enduring 24/7.

Letter dated 08/09/06
My name is *** ****** I am (was) 42 years old and i live in Israel. for the last 15 years i have been having back problems and pains, i have come across the mount Sinai neurosurgery page on the web looking for a solution to my problem. Once while i visited NYC i went and saw a neurologist, his diagnosis was that I had degenerative disk disease.

Since then the pain has gotten seriously bad and now there are many things I can not do any more because of it. In addition approx 18 months ago Ii heard a violent crunching cartilage shredding noise in my right hip & thigh, since then I have been told I ripped a muscle and that's all. Me my back and hip area are seriously "out of balance" and so said the physiotherapist I am going to. I have been given pro-tenc machine and Duragesic patches for pain, but the patches makes me physically sick as was the case with Tramadex and all the other pillsI have been given.

I have been to all to many doctors here in Israel trying to isolate what is the problem and how do i fix it, how to get grips on the pain and the other strange things that are happening to my body because of the pressure on my spine.
I have a CT back (1999), MRI x 2 back & hip(2006), EMG x2 (2006) results and blood work. I would appreciate if i could send u the CD's of the CT & MRI(s) to take a look at and tell me what u can do to help me or what else you need. i know this all may sound very strange but i don't really know what else to do to help myself and my back pains are seriously affecting the way i live and raise my children.
