I have come to Corrective Chiropractic with a diagnosis of Fibromyalgia. I was sent from one doctor to the other each adding another medicine to try and help my symptoms. I was swelling all over my body, had tingling in both hands and feet with numbness, and severe cramping throughout my body to the point I would have to sleep in a chair at night. I had always for years had pain but just chalked it up to arthritis or back pain or getting older. Then it got to the point where I was always in pain and couldn’t function at my normal capacity. I knew something was really wrong. I was sent to heart doctors, neurologists and others and tested for everything from Lyme disease to brain tumor to lupus and even ALS. Each doctor I went to give me another medicine so I was up to 8 pills a day in a matter of months but I wasn’t feeling any better. I didn’t even have the energy to get up off the sofa on many days. All tests came back negative but I was still taking all this medication and not feeling any better.
Then my sister gave me a free exam voucher at Corrective Chiropractic that said they could help Fibromyalgia patients. I’ve only been seeing Dr. Childs and Dr. Durr for a month and already see such a difference. I’ve had no cramping at all since the first day I came here and enormous. My energy level is back 75% at least. I’m almost pain free most days and I’m now down to only 2 pills a day. I no longer take heart medication because after all the tests there’s nothing wrong with my heart. I don’t take hormone replacement therapy anymore or the diuretic medicine they put me on for the swelling. I have hypothyroidism so I take a thyroid pill and one other pill for restless leg syndrome but I’m also being weaned off that. And I feel 80% better. I can now shop with my family whereas before I couldn’t walk for more than a ½ hour before I could have severe hip pain. My intimate life was gone because I was just too exhausted and in too much pain. The doctors and their staff at Corrective Chiropractic are all so nice and very supportive. For the first time in a very long time I really turned around. From 8 pills a day to 2 pills a day and from constant severe pain to being almost pain free in a month. That tells me all.
Thank you very much Dr. Childs and Dr. Durr. It’s an emotional relief to know there is help and I’ve found it here.
