jcawork Posted July 25, 2005 Share Posted July 25, 2005 I thought I would update you on my flank pain in case anyone else ever suffers from this and because I have suffered for so long and I don't trust a soul at this point. Has anyone else have experience w/ pinched nerves? My hussband took me to his Chiro (I have never seen one before) and he took xrays too (like the ortho work-up). He says my Ortho work up only went to T-10 and T-11 and T- 12 show pinched/compressed nerves. The vertebrea are sitting crooked, kind of half cocked. I can see this on the xray even though I can't really read them. That this is typical for this area (T-12) to radiate down to the flank area. He gave me a film copy to give my Onco. I have had 2 days of manipulations and I actually hurt worse if thats even possible. He said Thorasic is less common than lumbar and the Ortho just assumed it was lumbar and should have checked the whole thing?????? He think's I probably coughed it out of alignment with my pneumonitis I had badly for 6 months. Have you heard of this? Does this sound correct or possible. I would hate to spend time and money w/ a Chiro if it isn't correct. Thanks in advance of any feedback. Jen Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
