I was living a normal, busy life until things suddenly changed in Sept. 2003. I couldn’t get out of bed that morning. I had never experienced such extreme exhaustion and my muscles and joints hurt so badly that I didn’t know what to do. After several test, (3 Lymes tests, heart tests and more) I was diagnosed with a mixed Connective Tissue Disease and started on many medications. My hair fell out, the aches and pains intensified and I was dizzy all the time. After 6 mths they stopped treatment and diagnosed me with an Immune Deficiency. After 18 mths of unsuccessful treatment, I was diagnosed with an inflammatory muscle disease. It was ironic that I was now facing the same fate as the patients I took care of. This led to more medications. I was now walking with a cane most days. One day one of my new doctors told me she thought I also had Fibromyalgia. I thought, “that’s great, another diagnosis with NO CURE!” They said I was I was probably as good as I was going to get. I felt they were giving up on me. I was willing to try anything to feel better. I just wanted to be functional and live without pain. Then one day my mother showed me an ad for Corrective Chiropractic and their cure for fibromyalgia. I made an appointment and found that I had all the signs of Fibromyalgia and also had scoliosis and later learned that poor spinal health could lead to illness. After 4 weeks of treatment I could feel a difference. I felt less tired and was standing up straight for the first time in 3 years. This was amazing to me. My family and friends started to notice that I was looking and feeling better too. When I went to see my Rheumatologist she said that Dr. Childs and Dr. Durr had done more for me than they had over the past 5 yrs. I no longer have the constant aches and pains, my dizziness is gone and I am sleeping better. And no more cane. All of my medical doctors are very happy with how I am doing and I give Dr. Durr and Dr. Childs all the credit. They gave me hope and they delivered. I feel as though I am getting my life back .
