Pamela H in Texas Posted February 20, 2012 Share Posted February 20, 2012 Okay, quick background....as some of you know, I had an almost miraculous recovery of some pretty significant pain, mobility problems and health issues (crazy blood pressure, dizzyness, etc) back in Nov 2010 by going to an Osteopath who did OMT. I saw another one after overdoing it when we got back to Texas. It was a completely different experience but after a lot of initial pain, I again felt better. Well, last Tuesday, I went to this doctor and didn't have as much initial pain; but the pain has increasingly gotten worse, is now including muscle cramps in my back, a headache I can't shake, and I managed to dislocate both my hip and shoulder (things I used to do fairly regularly) yesterday. It was only slight on the dislocations, but both happened DURING the Christian meeting (think church). How did I manage that? Should I, this far out, be feeling better already? I don't know how long it took last time. I remember fearing I wouldn't feel better so I have been running on that this week, that I *thought* this way before. But I don't know if was a week out and I am pretty sure I didn't get worse past the initial manipulation pains (feels like bruising). It costs a LOT of money to go to this guy. So I don't want to go back so soon (he generally schedules appointments a month apart to allow the body healing time) if I just need more time. But I *need* to be able to feel better than I do right now. My son has mentioned me "whining" about it a few times. I think they just got used to me doing so much better. But *I* am really fearful that it may stop working. I just can't have that! Obviously, I *can* parent through this (as I did for many years), but....but it was supposed to be different this time. So those of you with OMT knowledge, would you say a week is long enough to go ahead and schedule an appointment (would probably be 1-2 weeks out) or ???? Right now, I would LOVE if I could take a month or so vacation up to the mountains in SW Virginia. I'll take the kids even. I just wish I could go to that doctor!
