So for the past 6-7 months I have been dealing with a lot of physical issues.
On the left side of my body:
Entire back complex is weak
Rhomboid is very small and weak
Teres minor gets involved and tight with every pulling exercise
Rear Delt gets fatigued almost instantly
Lat also gets fatigued very fast, and the contractions are painful and weak
Infraspinatus is a tight mess
Forearm at the elbow is tight as hell
Spasms running down my back
Bicep attachment in the shoulder is inflamed
Side of the shoulder from elbow to the trap seems to be tight
Right side of my body:
Levator is very tight
Infraspinatus is tight
Upper chest is tight
Very excessive rounding of the shoulder
Trap is tight
Clavicle clicks and feels very painful at the sternum
Serratus and lat are tight, almost to the point of cramping
Bicep is very tight
Knee pain in both knees
I spent 4-6 hours a day doing mobility work, soft tissue work, and corrective exercises. I spend the rest of the day in a depressive rut obsessing about my issues. I deal with depression the way it is, and this has kept me in a deep depression for months, despite medication.
I have seen a physiologist twice, 4 chiros, and 2 PT’s. None of them seem to know a fucking thing. They have robbed me of money that I don’t have, and have solved none of my issues.
I sleep in a Tempurpedic Cloud. Another expensive item that seems to make problems worse. I seem to feel better when sleeping in my 15 year old twin mattress for a few weeks.
I am very conscious of my posture, sitting and standing.
I have no idea where to go from here. None of the work that I have done has amounted to anything. I am able to have a decent lifting session maybe once a week. A few light ones per week. Practicing exercises with a broomstick causes great fatigue in the left lat.
In the past I have done hip mobility to help with some of the spasm pain. It rids of it quickly, but it is not long term. My bed seems to be an issue, but I have slept on several different surfaces the past 7 months, and they all do the same.
I managed a weight of 220 for a few months, slowly dropped to 215, had a very deep depression in which I was hospitalized, at which point I weighed 185, and right now weight about 195. I am reaching another very low state of depression. Obviously having depression, plus dealing with painful injuries and wasting hours and dollars for nothing is very frustrating.
Does ANYBODY have any suggestions? Do I get an MRI, X Ray - do I even bother with these doctors since they clearly don’t give a shit? If I see some foreign doctor again and he tries to tell me that this is simple myofascial pain I will freak out.
Thank you for reading. Any advice is appreciated. Keep in mind that I have done dozens of corrective shoulder/back exercises, almost every exercise on mobilitywod.com, and spend hours a day on a RumbleRoller. Dear MacGyver, please save my dog.
