I just have some questions and I'm kind of lost. I hope maybe someone will have an answer or an opinion. I've been having a lot of joint pain, chest, and neck pain. I’ve had chest pain for three years, neck pain for four months, and joint pain for one month. I've been to different doctors and they're all idiots. I went to one doctor and told him about the chest pain and after a lot of test he said I have costo chronditis which stands for chest pain in doctor’s terms. So I paid a lot of money to be told that I have chest pain. I was told not to exercise because they don’t know if it will cause more damage. So after 27 different blood works, X-rays, MRI's, 6 doctors, and 3 month of a Chiropractor I was told to take vicodin, loratabs and tylenol 3 and 4's and to get used to the pain because they don’t know what it is so there is nothing that can be done . Idiots!! The doctors above didn’t even feel my neck or chest they just prescribed pain pill and tests. So I went to a massage therapist and come to find out I have knots in the muscles or torn cartridge between the ribs that they can’t get worked out or fixed and is extremely painful. There is also a vertebra that sticks out and swells up mostly later in the day (but the MRI came back fine). I was told finally to go to the gym if I wanted to but it’s been too painfully to lift or do any exercises. I was wondering about the HGH and would you think it might build up the muscle or help in anyway so I might be able to start going to the gym? I want to get into better shape I used to work 90 hours a week for the last 4 and a half year and now with the pain I work 20 hours a week if that. I don’t know if HGH or something around that would do anything and if so, would a doctor prescribe it to me? Also what doctor do I want to see: Family or Specialist? The family doctors around here are scared to give antibiotics. The specialists gave me pain pills so I would shut up and leave. I don’t know if this is something to ask on here or not but I just want to know some opinion on what they would do in my shoes. Just a note the joint pain comes and goes now. I've been taking Joint Juice (1500 mg glucosamine drink a day) and super omega 3 fish oil. I'm trying anything that might work. Thanks for any input.
