Claudette W. - I feel as if I am getting my life back
Last year, I was scheduled for a medical procedure that required anesthesia. The preparation for the procedure included taking one tablet of the drug Raglan. After the procedure, I developed certain side effects, I believe caused by the Raglan drug. These included numbness, tingling, and pain in my hands, arms, and feet. My primary care doctor wrote a prescription for a drug he thought would lessen or eliminate those symptoms. Instead, they increased, and I developed additional problems, including sleeplessness, fatigue, and loss of hair. The answer from my primary care doctor was to recommend an even stronger drug from the same generic source. I simply could not take these drugs, because I developed almost all the side effects that were listed as possible. After undergoing several other tests, including nerve tests, X-rays, blood tests, vitamin D tests, brain scans, and more. No solution was found for my symptoms. I was at the end of my rope and my patience.
A friend recommended to me that I visit her chiropractor at Raleigh Specific Chiropractic. I did so in January, 2010, where I met Drs. James and Jill Winget. They conducted some preliminary studies of me, and recommended a program of spinal decompression treatment designed to treat a misaligned spine and disc damage. Almost immediately after starting the treatment, I had more relief from the symptoms than I had in the months previous.
When I began my decompression program I would rate my low back pain at 8 out of 10. The pain would range from sharp, shooting, burning, throbbing, and dull aching. It began more in the center of my back and is now right sided also. This had been going on for at least a year. I also had problems in my right leg, such as pain and tingling, and was getting out of bed and it would give out on me.
Throughout the attention provided to me by Drs. Winget, they have been very patient, kind, thorough, very helpful, and encouraging. Starting treatment by them has been very rewarding for me, and I am much better for it. I feel as if I am getting my life back.
