just to give you guy's an update for anyone that's interested-I do have m.s.. On a positive note I had my first appointment with the doctor that's going to be treating me. Top notch dude. He discovered more in a 5 minute physical exam than the whole squad that I was dealing with at the other place. Right leg weakness, double vision when I look to the left, and La'Hermitte's sign when I bend my head foward(it's like sticking your tongue on a 9volt battery except the shock runs down your spine and legs). Been doing p.t. and now have use of my right hand. Before doing injections he wants one more mri completed to see how much farther it's progressed. He says it's super active in the beginning and will hit a plateau eventually. I know I aint got time for this shit so I'm soldiering on. Can now operate my weapons but trigger control is still just a little off.

Good to hear you've got a great doc now that is taking care of it. Hope it plateaus sooner rather than later.

Thanks for the update. Rock on, brother.

Same here man. Like we talked the other nite. Just a pinched nerve and twisted spine. But the chiropractor found it within 45 minutes on film and X-rays where the va after a month of run around said I was having a stroke. Spent days in the hospital. Haven’t worked since May 21.
But damnit steve. Looks like I better grab my gun and walk you out back behind the barn. :lol: :LOL:
Wish you the best brother.

It’s twisted. Pinch nerve all the fun shit.
But the chiropractor says he can fix it. Well went from being bed ridden for a month. To going back to
Work this past week. It’s working. :thumbsup:

I went through the twisted spine thing about 6 years ago. Chiropractor fixed me up...it took months and pretty much two years before I was pain free. Couldn’t walk at all when it was at its worst.

Same. I was bed ridden for over a month.
Couldn’t walk. Limped around. Slept on the sofa cause didn’t wanna walk across the house.
Finally out of desperation I made the call to the chiropractor
Only been 2 weeks. But am going 3 times a week and I am already back to work.
Fucking crazy how that works.

I was in physio, talking to surgeons who said they might put me in a wheelchair, had one chiropractor make it even worse. Found this new chiro that looked at me and said...did the surgeons or anyone else mention how twisted you are? I said no... he said well I can’t fix the bad discs in your back but I can certainly untwist you and you’re going to feel a heck of a lot better. Glad you’re getting the proper help too!!!

Just got back from a session. Heard snap crackle pop!
Today is the first time in months I’m feeling like my old self and not a old man!’
When I first went in. I rated my overall existence at about 20.
Today I felt like it was 65. Shooting for 100. But will settle for 80 :lol: :LOL:
Next appointment Thursday

Glad to hear you're on the mend! My wife's back hasn't been right after she was in a wreck about 20 years ago. A really good chiropractor practically saved her life. She still goes every couple of months. So glad that it's working for you, too! That scan you posted yesterday was pretty messed up.

Dam man, you have been a bowling pin lately!
My wife had the same thing and it actually turned out good, but she does take synthroid every day to regulate stuff. If you can do that and be OK, thats much better than other forms of cancer :yes:
You got this brother, go kick its ass and go shooting :thumbsup:

Wow, Steve, this is a kick in the nuts. But at least they caught it early and the treatment is relatively minor, compared to chemo. Keep fighting the good fight, brother.

Geeze I thought had it bad. Been having some serious lower back pain lately. Started in january, went away and now its back but not as intense. I want to start seeing a chiropractor after reading some of the comments here. Goodluck with your progress.
