For over the past year, I have been experiencing chronic midback pain. I see a chiropractor, but seem to have no relief. The pain is so intense at times, I can hardly see straight, can hardly hold the tears back and start to panic at the fact that I have whatever amount of hours I have to try and deal with it while working. There are countless times I had to leave work early because I could no longer stand it and don't even care at that point if I get fired. I am a hairdresser, so I'm constantly on my feet and shampooing. And shampooing becomes literal torture. I'm only 25 years old, and it seems nobody else at my work or other hairdressers I know don't seem to have this problem..at least not to my extent. I recently went for an mri, and nothing turned up wrong so they said it has to be something muscular. I've been exercising and stretching, but nothing seems to relieve this pain. I'm starting to become increasingly depressed from dealing with this, and am in fear of losing my job because I cannot preform at my best. I just want the pain to go away, am I qualified to talk to and see a pain management specialist. I'm at my wits end and am desperate for relief.
