Subject: Re: I was struck by Lightning on Venice Beach – Steve Referred me to You
Hi Dr. Hendler,
Thanks for reviewing my results of the Internet pain diagnostic test with me.
Prior to the lightning strike, I have had a lifelong history with scoliosis in my thoracic spine, TMJ since I was in my early teens and I had a ruptured disc in my neck at the age of 27 (C6 & C7). My orthopedic surgeon said that the disc rupture was so light on the MRI that it may have been an artifact. The presenting problem since the lightning strike is the global weakness to my lower extremities and the pain in my right leg. I can feel in my right foot, in the arch, a spot that seems to run up my back leg, through my right side and up to the right side of my head where I felt as though it was burring and bulging for the first five or so days. It now just feels like there is pressure in there with occasional pain.
I want you to know that I tend towards using alternative means of healing first. I believe the body is a self healing mechanism. However, if I need help from any source that makes the most sense, I will get it! I have been working with a chiropractor for the last twenty years on the fallout from the scoliosis issue with incredible results.
Many thanks to you for all of your help. I was at a loss as to what to do next and I did not want to waste a lot of time and money on needless tests. Thank you so much for reviewing my Internet pain test results with me! I read them and found them to be very accurate!
