I can now sleep through the night without waking up in tears
I was diagnosed with Psoriatic Arthritis at the age of 28. PA has been very aggressive on my joints and destroyed my skin. PA is known as the “Heartbreak” disease, which has lived up to its name for the past 10 years. I have had many interrupted nights that left me sleeping sitting up.
My husband would set an alarm clock to remind him to get my pills ready so that my other pain meds wouldn’t wear off. I stopped working for 2 years because I was so embarrassed of my conditions and the thought of waking up every morning and getting out of bed disturbed me. I have had injections in my digits and taken almost every biological drug they have on the market. Every time I went to the Dr they gave me a new prescription that only masked the pain. The new prescription would not work well with the other prescription I was on for my skin and I would break out; it was a vicious cycle. My last resort in the non-chiropractic world was a pain management doctor where he would issue out more meds like a kid in the candy store. I started working for Dr Tron in May, 2014 and had NO idea what SPECIFIC chiropractic was. I had gone to other chiropractors and all they did was pop and crack my back. I left them asking, what about my sausage toes and fingers or my headaches after I was adjusted. It took everything out of me to go back every week with no results. They did not educate me that my worst enemies were being subluxated and not taking care of my body. I was feeding my disease with all the comfort foods in the world. I would not have known this until I started working for Dr. Tron. At first I was VERY angry at the fact that I have lost so many years and corrupted my body with toxins that I was consuming on a daily bases . I was even more angered when I talked with other patients and learned they were prescribed the dame drugs as I, but for a completely different symptom. I feel like a lab rat, just trying something that MIGHT work on me. After my first adjustment, I felt a change. Dr. Tron educates me every day and gives me hope that there is a chance for change. I am still working on my diet issues, but I am now more aware of what was bringing me down. I have permanently damaged a few joints, and don’t want to damage anymore. I have always joked about me being a 38 year old in a 83 year olds body (my pinky is still 83). I can now sleep through the night without waking up in tears. My psoriasis is getting under control without the nasty steroids. Thanks Dr. Tron, here’s to many more years of yodeling to the “Price is Right” climber and allowing me to not Break anyone else’s heart (including my own). Sincerely, Dawn Ortega
