Grin and Bear It...

The good news: they got the x-rays back and all it showed was that apparently my spine is "too straight" (in other words it doesn't have a natural curve to it).

I would go see a chiropractor for this problem... but I've tried that before... and ended up with a migraine after almost every single visit. Thus my fear of having my neck touched ranks up there with my fear of alligators. Actually my fear of having someone touch my back or neck may be worse... because past experience tells me that it's going to be very bad 99% of the time...

The bad news: the doctor thinks it's the post-pregnancy hormones and agrees with the past doctors that there's nothing they can do while I'm still nursing.

So I'll grin and bear it. :0D

It's much easier to say that when I don't have a headache than when I do!


  1. Glad you got some good news back about the x-ray , prayers that the headache's get better.

  2. Glad for good news; now on to praying that you can get some serious relief.


  3. I have the same fear of my neck being touched. I was in a car accident and needed serious help but my fear stopped me until I found out about straight chiropractors (not real common in my area). If you can find a chiropractor who is a "straight chiropractor" (also called actuator technique)they use a completely different method without any twisting or crunching involved. They may be something you could check out. Good luck God Bless.

  4. A friend of mine had the same problem, a too-straight neck, and did have it cured with chiropractic adjustments. See if you can find a recommendation for someone good, and get up the nerve to try it ... it will probably help.

    In any event, much better a neck problem than a neurological problem!


I love comments and I read every single comment that comes in (and I try to respond when the little ones aren't distracting me to the point that it's impossible!). Please show kindness to each other and our family in the comment box. After all, we're all real people on the other side of the screen!
