Hello and Welcome to our Community,
I'm sorry to read about your condition and pain. I've read your other posts, as I often do when someone posts such complex issues. It seems you've had multiple medical issues in the last few years - again sorry that you have so many painful challenges.
Have you had MRI or CT scans since you bike accident? Have your medical providers given you reasons for your inability to stand straight? Do you have bone fractures or organ injuries? Indeed very serious injuries can take years to resolve - at least before you feel normal again.
It may be time to get your lumbar spine - including coccyx area reevaluated. New scans may be in order to diagnosis any possible changes. Indeed a good physical may be beneficial to determine the reason(s) for your symptoms.
Your flank pain could be do to muscle spasms - they can be horrific. They could also be due to a kidney issue. Neither the spams or a kidney disorder can be positively diagnosed here. Again I encourage you to see you PCP (Primary Care Physician).
You may benefit from physical therapy if any musculoskeletal issues (post bike accident) have healed. Not being able to stand straight since 2010 (date of accident) tells me something needs attention.
Other members may have additional suggestions. I do encourage you to have a complete medical work-up. I wish you well and hope you painful issues will be addressed and resolved.
PHYSC, I'm impressed.
You survived a 40' drop -- splat -- only to fall off a log into a pile of bricks? And then you fell off your motorcycle... how fast were you going -- 50-60 mph?
I'm amazed that you're still alive. Are you a professional daredevil?
What would it take for you to seek medical care?
I didn't fall 40ft from the rope swing,i went to a gestimate 35/40ft and as i cam to ground level on returning from up high the rope snapped so me with the log beneath my spine hit the ground at around 1ft to 2ft but at a speed returning from around that 35/40ft .Either way i screamed like a little kid and was litterally in shocking pain crawling on all fours unable to stand at all for minutes it felt exactly like a humungous electric shock juddering through my spine.
The motorbike was in icy conditions flat out say 78mph roughly,i tend to not go the doctor to be fair unless it gets to a stage of litterally i have no other alternative as the issue has gotten debilating enough to cause concern of possible collapse or feels like it's critical enough to need serious emergancy treatment.
I'm certainly no daredevil but i did some really precarious and silly activities as a kid i would climb trees jump bmx's and even my racer bike when i was 9 yrs old over fires and people laying down,i grew out of that about 10 yrs old but then it was making bases (doses) in the woods and having fires etc usual child to teenager stuff.
But many times i have had some serious accidents in the process of it i would have to agree i feel lucky to have survived it all especially the m,otorbike at 78mph roughly that hurt so much i asked the guy if my foot was still there and i am not joking,it was referred to by friends and family as resembling that of a melon with garden peas for toes,i couldn't get my foot in any boots or shoes not even a work boot 1 size too big with the laces removed and the neck spread out on it,the pain is a lot less now almost invisible but now and again it comes on as i have arthritis in it,i was off work 3 months i couldn't put my toes lightly on the ground for 7/8 weeks without screaming.
We were silly as kids though the jumping off walls 10ft down and various other ridiculous none curricular activities.Like skateboards with the trucks loosened to lay down and go down huge hill roads bmx jumping over 4/5ft high jumps we lived in a area rural on one side suburban the other so we had a mix of different stuff we did as there were no really places to go that were indoors.
The motorbike incident at 78mph was when i smashed my foot severe,but the bank ijury bike accident came later at a low speed exited a drive to a hotel i worked at then as i pulled back throttling up it spun on ice and snaked it went down i landed ft 1st tried stupidly never do it to hold the bike from smashing up as it hit down in yanlked me and i forward rolled partially impacting my spine minutes later the pain was a 7 and i was taken by ambulance once again like the other bike injury,the other time i refused to let the woman phone an ambulance saying i'm fine then it kicked in and i didn't cry but my little bottom lip juddered out of control the pain was intense,the fracture doctor the next day put his hand on his mouth and gasped when he saw the swelling,he said he'd never seen swelling from a suspected sprain like that and said i see compound fractures day in day out but never have i seen a foot that swollen,he thought it may have been broken and or dislocated but i never went physio.I did however wake regularily or need regularily every so many hour coproximal after they wore off i would be in immediate agony until i have some again it is an experience i would never want to go through or any one else to go through ever not even if i had enemies would i wish that level of torturous pain on them believe me lol.
Thanks for the help,i have so many things real problems it's a nightmare to be honest i never had skin trouble or anything until around the age of 20/22 but it's progressively increasing all the time the litteral catalogue of my issues,a lump in my mouth i have had checked so thats one to cancel off that list it's a boney bit not a cyst or growth.
But the rest of the troubles remain,my back makes you feel decrepid though it's a bit embarrasing to have back problems at just 32 it makes me feel like i have the decrepidness of an elderly person,i will book in and get it all looked into as i appreciate spine lumbar will have to be scans my hip showed clear once but my back was supposed to have been done at that time but wasn't done after i checked the paper it was written for hip right side only.
I must say i believe it could be my kidneys as i never tried a tea strainer like told back when i was 21 i had mentioned similar p[ains but it is wqorse than that now if and when it pops up as it is intermitent it just feels like it could turn critical it's not like a regular pain feeling it seems more serious than a little bit of grit more like spinal or organ injury or beginings of failure but it may just be muscular like a spasm brought on by spinal injuries that weakened or degraded formation and shape of the muscles or the nerrves in your back?I'll be sure to let you guys know if i sort it out.
Sorry to answer have i had a ct or mri is yes only right side hip possibly both hips but no spine scans had a foot xray found calcification and i have arthritis from that injury,also the physio states my pain in my big toe damaged foot side is nerve damage from the accident and i have next to no movement in it,i can now move it up down fine but not spread a single toe outward .
You certainly need to get some evaluation of your coccyx pain and spine.
Could it be your kidney(s)? I guess that's possible but with your history of trauma I'd lean towards structural injuries.
Good luck. I'll be interested to hear the out come.
Tuckamore you are possibly right? As I get occasional kidney well right sometimes left flank pain,it's most noticeable as coccyx pain rarely a pain happens when I sit making you feel you have to sit off angle to relieve it,but kidney stones could be a possibility and odd times inflames that area pointing me to think it's the tail bone but it's a effect of mild kidney stones,or as I am plastered in cysts a awkward turn moves a cyst against a nerve which gives an impression of the tail bone is the key problem like a plecebo effect in a way?
I have discussed it with my gp, I infact as allways got way worse with that spine problem, it is indeed suspected relating to the spine, but more the adjoining hip (wasteband line) meets spine, apparentlyif your unlucky enought to suffer a serious whiplash and or spine impact or jarring event it can lead to an issue called si joint pain that can be chronic life long I was told, in my case the doctor assumes there is abone that leads either side of the hip to waist band area to support the lower upright position of the lower spine, and in some cases as he said prodominantly crash victims, and a number of bike whiplash injuries and coccyx impacts that do appear in some bad cases of bike falls or collisions, then these two diagonal support beam bones waist to spine supports can have issues that cause inflimaed area around the tissue muscles nerves and tendons of that plosition, thus in tern can cause many problems that become chronic in bad cases, so he hit the nail on the head he said it would likely affect your ability to be upright or bend etc etc prolonged or even short term.
And it's inoperable due to proximity and connection to the spine it's just too risky surgeons will refuse and it won't be done on the nhs either just too risky.
And the other diagnosis found correct later in hospital he made was my leg right hip flank was actually si joint pain and the other problem is chronic bursitis a fluid sac between upper leg and hip inflaming, all docs say and orthopedic surgeons that this is as I thought highly likely to bad posture and secondary implications of coming of that bike.
Ok english there's 2 bones supporting your lower spine they right angle from hip (waste band) and adjoin the spine lower lumber to provide a support angle beam between left & right hip (waste line) to the lower lumbar spine upright, and that spine/wasteband/hip bone area formaly is known as the socrialac or socroliac Joint? What ever higher education physiotherapy terminology is coined for that bone structure area, is erelevant, it's a higher risk area in both equine and human physiological injury for horses it is a part of equine physiotherapy training, and in human diagnosys it's an area that is renowned to be repetitious and or chronic, rarely in human injury is si-joint pain chronic and life affecting, as in humans this is commonly preventative of a straight walk or posture.
And the socrialac joint is a area of the hip meets thigh joint area with fluid in, that due to uneven gate (posture/walking shape) due to my bike crash injusry, has caused over wear and tear on the area, it's something motorcyclysts suffer from due wear and tear, and plastering for my first step father, like a feeling of i owe the rate of pay sorting me, but yeah that to has a toll younger generation, i did leave school safeway-plasterer's apprentice, so never slacked I over did it, I was man level meterage ptaping before a man layed 80sqm high end i was 120sqm a day. So yeah worked like a man, never like a kid, done 10+ jobs, plastering I got to 100 gbp a day before tax I didn't slack I over worked sickness and in health although never able again.
