I have had back pain since I was very young, about 15 years. Any doctor I went to just prescribed anti-inflammatory and muscle relaxers to me. The problem was never solved, so for years the pain would come back and stay for 2-4 weeks. The past three years have been especially difficult. In those three years, I was only pain-free for about 3 months. I was getting so depressed because I am only 26 years old! How could I be happy if I were always in pain? How could I carry and raise a child in the future? I began to have stomach and intestinal problems daily. I took Pepcid AC and 2 Tylenol PM pills every night, just so I could sleep through the pain and discomfort. I was at the end of my rope, and I just happened to drive by Dr. Brenda's office on a particularly bad day. I had to hold my tears back because I knew that this was my last hope before surgery (which wouldn't have helped because no doctor knew what was wrong). I met with Dr. Brenda and after seeing my x-rays; we knew I had a big problem that would take aggressive treatment to overcome. After seeing Dr. Brenda my life is completely different! I no longer take any pills for pain, my stomach and intestinal problems are gone and I am no longer depressed because I am not in terrible pain. Thanks for making life better!
