why is it so hard to get help?
I started having very troublesome back pain about 7 years ago. After a year or so I was given an MRI that showed a couple of disk that were bulging and a couple that were already herniated. At that time I had no insurance. On my first visit to the spinal center here, they recomended fusion. When they found out that I had no insurance they said that physical therapy would be more appropriate. After a while of physical therapy, inversion, and spinal injections the pain just got worse. I now have medicade and a new appointment with the spinal surgeons. I hope they are willing to do something no matter what. No one in this town will write prescriptions for any pain medicaition which has left my husband having to buy it off the street for now. How do the people on the street, who don't seem to need the medicine, get it prescribed to them when I can't get any and my back pictures look like a war zone?
