In fact, I guess I finally deserve the psychiatrist´s diagnosis of Syndrome of Atlas. I have this high level of anxiety (combined with depression) which led to this painful back problem that I dont know how to solve.

It was on cervical bones 4 and 5 last May. Since January it has been getting worse. I think all cervical bones (C1 to C7) are affected plus going down the center of the spine.

I´ve had massages but that was temporary. Painkillers... I take them all the time as much for the back as for the headaches/migraines. I take muscle relaxants if they won´t mix with a tranquilizer (rarely) or lithium (regular). A passing relief every 4 or 8 hours.

Ok, I dont exercise. I see my cat stretching and feel like a coward for not even trying cuz now it really hurts. I can barely carry a grocer´s shopping bag. I dont eat right either. Neither do I smoke, they say it relieves anxiety, maybe I should try... put a few more nails in my coffin...

The pain is now becoming unbearable. My doc even suggested acupuncture!

What´s your suggestion? Let me know if you have any questions. I appreciate your thoughts.

Sini,

What is the CAUSE of your back pain? My mom once lifted a heavy bucket and had slipped back. She has always had severe back ache that would come back every now and then. When she had these severe back ache, she would retire in bed all day lone and would take a leave from work.

My mom tried acupunture by Chinese doctor but to no avail.

Knowing the cause would help a lot, even tho I am no doctor.

I hope you will feel better soon!!!(((Sini & M)))

Hi, Ras, you seem to be doing alright. Did you know it´s Labor Day here on Monday? Useless info, he?

I can empathize with your mother´s back pain. Im happy for my grandma who lived to be 90 with a wreck of a spine. Both her blessing and the pay off of her debts on earth. Some of it was psychosomatic.

Well, once I fell badly on my back. Imagine, an almost 30 y.o. Sininho hanging from a Papaya tree when the branch broke off. Never more. You just dont climb papaya trees, not here, not there, not anywhere. I wanted to get to the balcony of my house to get inside cuz I had forgotten the key. The fall blew the wind off my chest.

But, as I said, its supposed to be psychosomatic, mainly anxiety. Just tense all the time, you know? Too much of anything is good for nothing, said a wise lady.

Im guessing I should try a gym nearby where the physical education trainers recommend on what you can and cannot do. Now Im not being lazy (as much) but more afraid of the pain.

THere are two things I remembered. One is that I am working more too, and the second is that my eyes are overdue for a revision and Ive been scruntching (sp?), putting my chin up, to get a better vision of the computer and now the books, too. Of course I worry cuz a tooth implant and glasses cost more than I can afford right now. Ive even decided to go for the glasses.

tks (((Ras and PP)))

((((sinninh)))...how are you hon, so sorry for you aches and pains. I am all about alternative medicine. Accupunture has worked wonders for me but I'd suggest going to a Naturopathic Dr. who does accupunture as well, as opposed to a general accupuncture. All the best...

Sini:

I am so sorry about your pain. Yes, I can see what the doc is saying. Stress does terrible things to one's body. My body is permanently wrenched because of the stress.

Listen honey, please try to get this under control before it becomes permanent. I cannot go back and change me, but maybe I can help you.

Do you know biofeedback? or relaxation technique? I can print them if you want them. There are also exercises that can help.

Let's talk, ok?

Hey (((Fanta))) and (((MamaC)))!! Tks for the info.

Fanta, I haven´t heard of a Naturopathic Dr. Always something to check if we have it around here.

MamaC, so good to hear you´re fine, managing your pains. I´ve heard of biofeedback but can´t recall if its audio relaxation or what. I know yoga helped me in the past both physically and spiritually. Don´t want to trouble you at his point unless you have the material handy. I´m lousy at self discipline these days due to lack of motivation. Those who had it and lost it really know what it is... the feeling for doing things, simple, routine things as much as fancier ones.

One thing that happens with the body treatments we do is that, as we learn that our body can take it b/c of the treatments, we quit the treatment and keep biting more than we can chew. Why is so hard to get itinto our heads or is it the body? Is that why it takes generations and milions of them for some evolution. Body imprint? Rhetoric question... Never mind 😉 The thing is I can be 100% of the time tense except for the ten-minute breaks the army takes during a long march. And they exercise.

But other than that (and this that is enough) tk HP my life is flowing better. I´m motivated enough to work some and to appreciate the funny tricks my kitty does. She was playing huntress and doing a lot of noise around a cardboard box on a shelf where she found a crack between the shelves. Her pointed ears and her squeezed eyes meant more than army camouflage. As I watched her she came out and stared at me like: Watcha looking at? You wanna fight?! Get outta here, I´m playing, don´t embarass me. I mean her eyes said it all!!

tks and hugs,
