Thoracic Pain. t7 / t8

Started by Simpson on 01/19/2019 7:09am

Until I read some of the discussions on here, I felt that no one could understand this horrific excruciating pain. I even told my last 2 Dr’s, just put me down. I’ve had PT, to no avail. I’ve had steroid injections, got no relief. Yesterday 01/18/19, I had a nerve block on t8, no help yet. Dr says the next step is to have the nerve burned. No one should have to live in this much pain. Over the past couple of years, i’ve gone to the ER due to this horrific pain and they think you just want pain pills! This couldn’t be farther from the truth! I want them to find out what is causing this and fix it! Baptist Hospital in Little Rock wouldn’t even do an MRI, they said that they don’t do that anymore. So they gave me a very mild pain pill and told that I could drive myself home! I am getting an MRI ON FEBRUARY 12,19. I had even told my Dr that the pain is so bad that i’d just like to take a knife and cut it out myself! The pain is under my left shoulder and radiated all the way around my left front ribs! I’m thinking about donating my body to Science so NO ONE in the future has to suffer like this. I wake up at night in excruciating pain, I can’t cook, load or unload dishwasher, or move to do anything without this killing me!
