I have piriformis syndrome, which basically is a muscle in my buttock that will spasm and irritate the sciatic nerve. It causes pain and pressure down the right side of my lower back and shooting pains down my right leg. So I’ve been going to the chiropractor to treat it because I’m currently dealing with a flare since Tuesday.
So anyways, first visit was great. The guy was finding alternative ways to stretch the muscles and move the nerves around to that I wasn’t in too much pain.
the second visit I get this girl that essentially just cracks my upper spine, pokes my sore irritated lower back, does nothing with it and emails me exercises.
but today....today was the fucking worst. I get another guy and I start telling him my concerns and how I was dissatisfied with the lack of treatment the previous time. And he proceeded to press his whole fucking weight on top of the flaring muscle in my buttock. And he keeps doing at as I’m flailing and wiggling away from him. He stops to tell me to stop moving away from him and keeps fucking pressing on it as hard as he can. The pain was so intense that I’m struggling to breathe and I’m crying into the bed. Then finally I manage to scream out, “am I being tortured here?!” And he says no and keeps fucking doing it. When he finally sits me up he notices now that I’ve been sobbing into the head rest. Then apologizes for not knowing I was in that much pain. DUDE....I was moving away, screaming and flailing...don’t fucking tell me you didn’t know.
I sat in my car and cried for 20 minutes as the shooting pain in my back and leg continued to worsen.
then I got a pedicure cause it’s the only place I knew that had massage chairs
