Patient : I'm 31 years old. I have vertebral deterioration at the base of my neck and my lower back. That's misery in itself! Last august I suffered a grand mal seizure so bad it caused compression fractures in the t4-t7 vertebrae. I was told they were mild and not to worry, because the pain would subside in time. well, it's been over a year, nothing has been done about the fractures, and my daily life is an absolute train wreck. i have numbness and tingling through my whole body daily. i'm tired of being brushed off and tossed aside by "medical professionals". there's got to be something that can be done for the fractures. i've been to a chiropractor and he told me he couldn't touch me.
