Compression fractures

Patient

Q: On 08012010, i suffered a grand mal seizure that was so bad it caused compression fractures in my t4-t7 vertebrae. i was told they were mild, and not to worry about them because the pain would subside. well, it's been a year, and nothing has subsided...it's worse. i have so much pain in my spine and i have so many problems with normal daily activities. no one will take me serious. i also have vertebrae degeneration in my neck and lower spine, which sometimes radiate to my middle spine, causing even worse pain and numbness in limbs. this pain is literally debilitating and usually leaves me just crying because i don't know what to do. please help me.
