    Dammit! I'm not supposed to be able to feel back pain

    This bed rest is killing me. No matter what position I'm in, my back is killing me. I get it massaged when I can and I can actually feel where people's fingers are in the muscles. It's better than sex is these days. LOL. Then to top that off, there something going on with my left hip. It hurts like hell and my left foot rotates in. I've been to the doctor and they say it arthritis. Celebrex helps but not as much as I'd like. My pain Dr. injected pain medicine directly into the joint but it hasn't helped at all. I can't wait to get back up. Soon. There's no depth to the sore anymore now the skin just has to heal.

    Make the best out of today because yesterday is gone and tomorrow may never come. Nobody knows that better than those of us that have almost died from spinal cord injury.

    Hi Art,
    A rolfer as in rolfing puts the body in proper alignment.
    Hope your doing well. Havn't seen any of your posts in a while as I had been away from the site for quite a while as I had other issues going on.
    Take Care Art !

    Hi Ryan,
    So sorry that your once again on bedrest. I didn't know you were back in bed again. May be a rolfer could help you to feel better and put your body in proper alignment to feel better and for better health. Since your foot is rotating in sounds like you need an adjustment. Perhaps maybe your hip it rotating to cause your left foot to be rotating in. Did you send a message to KLD and Dr Wise Young? If not I highly suggest that you do ASAP. Best of luck hope you find the solution to feeling better.

    Well it's been a long time since I've checked but I'm going to a neurologist to check the possibility of me being incomplete. When I take the drug like Viagra (can't think of the name right now) I have full feeling down there. They say my hip hurts from arthritis but I don't know, it's really severe it is really hard to lay on. I guess we'll find out soon enough. I wonder what benefits what I have from being incomplete?

    From the perspective of a person with very incomplete SCD, you're already enjoying the primary benefit: full sensation in your genitals. The other benefit is that you *may not* be plagued with central pain in the areas where you retain sensation. Of course, you will be able to feel every bit of nociceptive pain that affects the incomplete areas, and you might end up with allodynia there, too, which makes all those sensations and many non-painful ones hurt like a bitch.

    Is officially changing your diagnosis from an ASIA A to an ASIA B that big of a deal that it's worth the risk of opening up a still healing pressure sore?
    It is easier to find men who will volunteer to die, than to find those who are willing to endure pain with patience.

    I don't plan on going there until this sore is healed, although it's getting there pretty quick. Plus I'm back on my Roho Quattro Select or something like that which doesn't put any pressure on my trocanters. I'm still in bed, I just have a little more leeway on getting up. Now I just need to get my chair readjusted so the foot rest is at the proper position since it was put a little higher with the Ride cushion on their. Let's hope I can get up a little bit longer and a little more often than I have been. I went to the doctors office today for my annual bladder scans and had a hell of a time pushing around. Can't wait to get that straight back
