Joel swanson on Oct, 20, 2012:
Im a 53 year old male, My back and other joints slip in and out of position, My lower spine does and I throw it out all the time, over time my joints have broke down causing lots of arthritis and they always said I have degenerative joint desease and lots of arthritis! Finally I was diagnosed with elhers danlos syndrom type 3(Hypermobility)this explains the dislocating/slipping of my joints!Few doctors are up /knoledgeable about this desease! You might talk to youre doc and have him and yourself get research on this! No cure but it will help them to take your pain management more seriously. Im on Opana er,tramidol vicodin for breakthrough pain and I have an Intrethecal pain pump to pump hydro morphone into my spinal colum and that reduces the amount of drugs I need for pain relief! Most important don't give up! keep fighting untill you get into a situation with a doctor and a pain management clinic that take youre situation seriously and you get the relief you need1 Don't let the depression and hopelessness take over and if you want to get them to treat you seriously NO STREET DRUGS!!! if you use them game over they will just blow you off as a drug seeker! Good luck fight hard and God help you stay positive and strong!

An MI is commonly called a heart attack. Go to the ER.

43 yr male.. I have been having extream cluster headaches. As if there is any other kind. A year later I had a MI (heart attack) very scary. It started as back aches, went quickly into a feeling of my lungs on fire. I also vomited.. Shortly after that a severe pain in my left arm like I was punched repeated in one spot. I had to stints put in. To test for MI, you can have a cardiac enzyme test done. The more enzymes the more damage to your heart. Hope this helps
