If you get an "Unable to verify referring url.

Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

Guidance or Information, Please
« on: March 20, 2017, 01:36:23 am »
I'm loathe to ask others for help unless absolutely necessary and it appears I'm at that point now.

My Little Lady was suddenly struck with nearly debilitating pain in her left elbow two weeks ago. We've been to the ER (hospital for those in Europe), and to a specialist. Since the onset this has begun to spread up and down her left arm and to her right arm as well.

No one can tell us what is wrong, only what isn't. To date, they've eliminated all of the mundane causes that fit her symptomology.

While I know that UPG is generally not very well received here, I believe it may be relevant so I'll include this here as well.

I tend to attract pretty hardcore things. On occasion these things attack my loved ones when they can't get at me directly. I'm also pretty high operating myself. I've been known to fry electronics when I get upset, make pendulums swing from across the room, and some crystals react to my touch by screaming.

I've noted and twice now removed what seem to have been energetic bands from both elbows. We have also noted a significant increase in paranormal activity around us and our immediate families.

And tonight, I noted something which has me particularly concerned. I can see energy to some extent, similar to those who can see auras. He lower three chakras seems to be completely black, while the upper four were very bright. Once we got home and she was able to take her pain meds, the lower three lit up again and the upper four dimmed correspondingly.

I have been unable to locate any information which seems relevant or helpful. She is, to a large degree, an untrained Medium, very strong Empath, and has other less intense abilities. I tend to shield myself from her as much as possible so as not to harm her.

So, at this point, I'm at a loss. The only time she's not in agony is when she's drugged up and that's no way to live. Modern medicine has failed, as far as I'm concerned. So now I have to look to other potential causes.

Any help, a direction to research, blogs, etc., or even guidance from a healer, would be greatly appreciated since my energies do not lend themselves very well to healing.

In case it's important, she's a Wiccan, more or less contemporary/classic Path.

If you've made it this far, whether you can help or not, thank you for the time you took to read this.

I do send you both general requests for support and best wishes. But if I pray for your situation specifically it will be as a Christian, praying to the Christian Godhead. Do you want this?

I do not seek to attach any strings to my petition, but there is a possibility that He may. If He does, I am confident that it will be with the ultimate best interests of everyone at heart...but there may be some potholes on the road between here and there.

Regardless, the request for support stands. I wish you both the best.

Mundanely: I have no magical cure, but if it helps, go see a chiropractor.  A really good one.  I'm not even joking.  It is insane how much they can help balance you out and the things that end up getting better because of it.

A friend of mine struggled with debilitating pain in her foot.  Lost her job because of it, couldn't walk for 4 months in a boot.  Doctors had no idea, and they performed every test imaginable.

A few weeks with a chiropractor and her pain was noticeably lessened.

Also, vitamins.  Not a multi, but something specific to the problem, like B complex for nerves, etc.

Spiritually: Take this with a grain of salt; this is just my opinion.

You shielding yourself from her isn't enough.  She needs to be able to center and shield herself.  

Malachite and black tourmaline may be good stones for what she's currently dealing with.  

It never hurts to own your space either - the home, the property, etc.  Strong protective rites, clean areas.  Once you eliminate any mess and guard it, you have a safe space to start from, at the very least.  Empaths can suffer terribly if their home environment is up-heaved.

I do hope she feels better!

Absolutely seconded.  Housemate managed to convince me to see a chiropractor when I was nigh-crippled from pain in my leg and I was brought to functional almost immediately.  (Not 100%, but functional.)

I appreciate the offer, as the does the Little Lady. However, she's politely declined the offer and I have to defer to her as it's her beliefs et. al. at the heart of it.

Thank you for the offer though. We really do appreciate the though; especially since it's still good thoughts sent her way. Every bit helps.

We'll have to see what kind of coverage her insurance provides for chiropractic. I've had similar experiences and I wouldn't be at all surprised if it made a difference.

As for the stones, those I can come by easily enough at the local flea market. I'll have to keep an eye out for them.

To the part about the spirituality... She's learning, but very slowly. I can shield non-stop with next to no effort. She's nowhere even in the same galaxy as that.

Thank you for the co-sign there, Darkhawk. I know of a few that offer cheap adjustments and one that does rehabilative chiropractic. We just have to see what the cost is going to be first since for the time being money is still an issue.

Thank you all for the well wishes and suggestions thus far from both of us! They are very much appreciated.

Have you had her check out Jenett's Seeking site? In particular I'm thinking of the Core Skills articles, which are excellent for building an effective structure for energy management and energetic self-care.

Does your insurance cover MRIs? It might be a good idea to get one of her upper spine...

I'm not a doctor--not anywhere close--but recent events in my life make me think it would be a good idea to get that checked out. Intense pain from what I thought to be a broken rib turned out to be an issue with my spinal cord. I don't want to scare you and it's very likely that's not it, but that's my suggestion.

In my experience, energetic blocks and weirdness can be caused by severe health problems.

Good luck to you both!!

I'm not sure but I do know the ER didn't want to do one on either visit. It wouldn't surprise me if she did have a problem like that though since she slouches so much... She might be developing a spinal issue.

I can speak from experience that ER's usually don't do MRI's. The job of an ER is to make sure the patient isn't actively dying and then send them on to where they need to be- whether that's an admission to a floor of the hospital or a consult with an outside specialist. In the case of shooting arm pain they'd probably just rule out a heart attack and then refer you to an outpatient doctor.

I will stem off of what you said though, and say that spinal issues are a possibility. Classic presentation of pain caused by nerve issues is that it will  be sharp/shooting pains that are sometimes difficult to pin down to one location, and may be accompanied by burning, tingling/electric, or numb sensations (think like what happens when you hit your funny bone- that's temporary nerve trauma). If it's her arms that are bothering her then they'd need to be looking at her cervical spine at the base of her neck.

I do want to give one word of caution about chiropractors- there have been a number of documented cases of people dying immediately following a chiropractic adjustment of the cervical spine (neck) because their carotid arteries (which brings blood to the brain) dissected, or split open from the sudden pressure caused by the realignment. If you do go to a chiropractor, I strongly recommend that you avoid neck adjustments.

Most reputable chiropractors nowadays don't use manual manipulation for the vervical or even thoracic regions of the spine specifically because of issues with regard to excessive application of force.

Still searching for respite for her now though, so...

I thought I'd provide a status update, such as there is an update to be given...

As of Tuesday, when we went to her followup; the specialist has confirmed absolutely no traumatic injury to her body.

So now they're run blood tests for auto-immune disorders and Lyme disease. We could know the results as soon as later today (Friday).
