    So as most folks on here know I have been suffering with excruciating back issues for a few years now, but only in the past 8 – 10 months has it been so bad that I literally have been praying to just get hit by a bus. I recently posted a huge Facebook rant about how screwed up our healthcare system is and how no matter what I do I can’t seem to get anyone to help me. Either it’s not covered by my insurance or I can’t get to see the appropriate specialists because I need a referral which my insurance will not provide, etc. etc. I’ve been to the chiropractor, I did physical therapy, I even tried acupuncture, nothing has done a thing to dull this pain and the now 3 doctor’s keep telling me I’m fine and just to diet and exercise. I have had a bulge in my back for months and I was told by my doctor and the chiropractor that it was a muscle spasm which I have told them over and over again it’s not, but what do I know… I’m only the one who can feel it.

    So… remember my co-worker I literally cannot stand? She messages me just after the new year and says her husband is related to a fellow who says he can fix me. He doesn’t speak any English and he does under the table adjustments out of his basement apartment. Now ALL of this sounds creepy as heck to me but I am desperate! I agree to go… this little Portuguese man performed a freaking miracle! He touches my back for about 5 minutes and I feel like a freaking million bucks. I have been reluctant to post about it yet, but it’s been about a week now. I just literally painted out entire training room and break room at work and I could do it again! I would have been bed ridden for weeks if I did that before! It took me 4 months in little short spats to paint my living room and I was dying!

    He literally bends me slightly over his kitchen table and my coworker translated for me, he said I had 3 slipped disc in my upper back and 1 in my lower back. One by one he pops them back where they are supposed to be. The bulge is gone, the pain is gone. I cried SO HARD to feel no pain for the first time in almost a year! I just kept hugging him! I was so scared on the drive home and it would be back by the time I got there, much like the chiropractor and everything else that only provided temporary relief. Even then, it never really went away, just made me good enough to make it through my day without swerving into oncoming traffic. He said I shouldn’t have even been walking because my nerves were tangled and pinched between the slipped discs. He repositioned them (SOMEHOW!?) and I swear to God I feel AMAZING! I haven’t prayed in decades! Ever since my father passed away… I have prayed for this man’s health and well being every day! I still can’t believe it… Now… I cannot get mad at my horrible co-worker ever again! LOL!

    I also didn’t realize what a miserable douche I have been all year to just everyone. Around my boyfriend, at my job, just everywhere. I was in a huge angry and bitter depression just because I was ALWAYS in pain. All week everyone has been like “wow, you’re in a good mood” and like “wow, you look like you’re glowing today!” Just because I feel so much better!

    Oh Gods I hope this relief lasts! I’m trying very hard to not do anything too stupid, but also exercise and strengthen myself (not that I actually can without it being excruciating) Stupid things I didn’t even realize I missed… like being able to pick up something I dropped without it being a huge to do. Being able to get in and out of my car like a normal person and not hissing and groaning in pain as I try to use my hands to hoist myself out or in. Who has fun going to the bathroom now? THIS GIRL! *points to self* Who gets excited they can get out of be without rolling to the floor on their knees! I DO!

    No surgery, no thousands of dollars in bills for no reason and no relief, just a little dude in his basement apartment performing little miracles! I have literally lost all faith in the American healthcare system! All praise to the back alley Portuguese back whisperer!

    I know I’m going to have to be bringing my co worker breakfast and coffee as I happily work every weekend and holiday for the rest of my days, but I don’t even care! OMG! I feel SO GOOD! I could work 7 days a week and still have bounce in my step! Please oh please let me not have just jinxed myself now that I’m finally celebrating getting officially fixed!

    That’s Great! And I thought it might have been herniated or slipped discs in your back because my Husband went through it as well. An MRI would/should have showed it clearly – but since you haven’t been able to get one… Hope it lasts!

    That’s absolutely amazing!! I have a bit of knowledge of what that kind of pain is like too, I suffer from Sciatca problems from time to time, just a month ago I had a spasm that had me bed ridden for 2 weeks, I couldn’t even get out of bed to go to the bathroom! Back and nerve pain is no joke, and it can change so much of your life for the worse. I’ll pray that things stay good for you!

    As for exercises that are supposed to strengthen the core, which as I’m told would hopefully help lower back pain, have you looked up the Mcgill big 3 exercises? They’re very simple, nothing extreme, but I’ve been trying to do them regularly in hopes that a stronger core will help keep everything from going haywire lol.

    That’s amazing! I have heard of people like that who are like underground healers and I totally would go to someone like that too over a modern day doctor if I wasn’t getting help. Luckily I have a good chiropractor and when I had a back injury too it eventually got better with adjustments, stretches and yoga but it took a while. Too bad I don’t really know anyone like that locally as my friend has chronic pain and has also tried everything to find what is causing it and what can help.

    That is so awesome for you!YAY YOU!! One of the best pleasures in the world is no pain.
    I have been around many Asian communities and I trust their remedies 10-1 against our “educated”health care system.They taught me plenty.The older generations do not eat any red meat.They eat broth from it but never the meat.Gives us stomach issues as we grow older.See how beautiful their skin is and they age very slowly. Seafood folks,seafood.
    That old medicine, been around for centuries.Wanna guess why our docs don’t do these old remedies.money,money,money.
    Don’t heal the problem,put a bandage on it so you have to come back.
    That is excellent news for you and don’t overdo it until you build your strength back up in your back.Easy to rehurt it.
    Simply Awesome!
    (I still would not trust her though.She will probably take advantage of you even more but maybe not.lol)

    May this New Year be the best year of our lives!

    So true Bodine! If doctors cured anything they wouldn’t make any money! I took a master herbalist and nutrition program from a small college years ago and I know more about health than any one nurse or doctor I know. They get zero education in those areas.
