I continued with adjustments......Doc said on a scale from 1 to 10, my leg length was a nine. I started "feeling" better. Still couldn't walk, but my mood and outlook was soooo positive!! For 3 weeks! Told doc this was great even if I couldn't walk well. I was sleeping well and in a good mood. He said this is how it happens, everything starts working together:) happy happy
Then it abruptly stopped!!!! It's hard to fall asleep now, I wake up every few hours, and I have had bad dreams every night. What happened??? I tell the doc what has changed. "Well, lets make you feel better," he says. An adjustment......$45......out the door......no change.......Frustrated!!
It's been 4 months. Doc initially said 6 weeks.....then 12 weeks........"You'll be better by spring!," he said. He keeps putting off taking measurements again. I guess I will have to insist on them next time!
At one visit, after an adjustment, I stood up and he asked me how my leg felt. I said, "Um, just a minute, let me see, I want to make sure I'm not getting the placebo effect." He said, "We don't do the placebo thing here. You either feel better or you don't. It's real." And I'm in and out the door in 5 minutes. At the next visit, I ask, "How could I possibly have walked fine and had so much energy after an adjustment?" His reply, "Well, you felt so bad, we could have hit you over the head with a sledge hammer and you would have felt better." NOW, isn't that the placebo effect???? UGH!
Daughter goes in braces in June. Don't know how much longer I will be able to afford a NUCCA treatment that isn't helping.
I'm trying to be objective. (My wallet keeps me objective)
