I have been diagnosed with first, Addison’s Disease and more recently, Hashimoto’s disease. I have had 2 back surgeries for ruptured discs at L4, L5 and a laminectomy in that area. Now, it looks like I may have SI Joint Dysfunction and I am awaiting results from an MRI which may or may not show anything. What can I do to help myself besides the physical therapy and exercises I am currently doing? I had no idea these things may be related until Friday when my physical therapist said the pain pathways have changed, the tingling in the right leg has increased, etc. Are there natural supplements I can take/use to assist? I am working full-time as a teacher and in a great deal of pain, I walk with a cane but, I love my job. LOVE my job. I do not want to leave a career I worked so hard to get into, have a family to support and I love what I do.
