Because no doctor helped! Three years of hellish pain

Frau Claudia B. & Dr. Schubert

Mrs. Claudia B. (41) from Wörishofen went through a real ordeal, as her for the strongest neck and back pain for three years by a doctor to the next pilgrimage - without a diagnosis and frightening predictions. Even today, she says full of emotions experienced over time, the fears and thoughts of suicide.
A Munich orthopedist projected her as they would in the event of an operation to nursing care with a stomach tube and advised instead to steroids and painkillers infusions. Without a diagnosis to a Munich neurosurgeon recommended a cocktail of morphine, and psychotropic drugs. A university hospital in Munich dismissed the patient's pain after a myelogram (cerebrospinal fluid examination) with a diagnosis of "you do not have anything" with more pain than before, and referred the patient to the pain clinic to psychologists and psychiatrists. The morphine, which she took fire for some time worked, no more, doctors were to ever higher doses, now Mrs. Brand was leading a normal life anymore, she lived in a hotel because they no longer cope with her housework alone could.

As a former nurse wife wanted to accept this fate just does not fire on their own and sought for solutions.

She was lucky, her former colleague, physician and surgeon, Dr. Michael Wagner, Christian Schubert, diagnosed by an MRI and a detailed neurological examination, two herniated discs in his neck. The result of the imaging diagnosis was later confirmed by discography. Both discs were symptomatic, ie, they caused the severe pain and loss of function.

Spine specialist Dr. Michael Schubert replaced the degenerative disc two disc prosthesis. Mrs. Brand is pain-free since her surgery and is back in the middle of life. The former nurse hopes someday to be able to return to work - if not more in the physically strong incriminating care of patients who probably had favored her spine problems. It is important to her that her story is known, because she senses that her destiny is not unique, so she turned to magazines like "image of the woman" or "Munich evening paper."

We wish to thank Mrs. Brand all the best for their future and their recovery for the openness with which she reports on her condition.
