Might very well be the day that changed my life.
A little history first
I have been suffering for years with Fibromyalgia, but did not even know it.
I am talking like 20 years here -
So much pain - from nowhere - hitting everywhere - moving - changing
But even a good day came with pain, but you get so "use" to having pain, that when it reduces for some reason it is so much more tolerable.
I live for those good days...
Went to doctors- many of them - all kinds - chiropractors, neurologists, M.D.'s, D.O.'s and pretty much they all thought I had a "slipped disc" - many tests - xrays - drugs - and therapy - but to no avail. Nothing helped and nothing was showing up. and in fact physical therapy was so painful it made me cry - well I don't cry easily - so you know it hurt like heck...
As each year went by the pain got worse. Started in my back (hence why the doctors thought I had a slipped disc), then moved to my hips, legs, feet, rib cage, shoulder, neck. Then 2 years ago I went to new D.O. only because he came highly recommended by a friend of my husband's. This doc was able to relieve some of the pain with "hand's on" healing, where he could move energy from one part of my body to another and out, without even touching me. I know that probably sounds really crazy, and as I was laying there having it done to me, I was thinking: THIS IS REALLY CRAZY! But, I swear, it helped. But the effects did not last. It was only a temporary fix. And the sessions were pricey. So, of course I stopped going.
Tried another D.O. about a year later when I could not stand the pain again. This D.O. is the one that got me in physical therapy that was like torture! At this time I wanted to have SOME relief, even for a short time so I returned to the 'hands on healing' doc one more time. A year had passed since I saw him last. Well this time, he could see that I was worse and he was the one that made the Fibromyalgia diagnosis.
