ON A PERSONAL NOTEWhen I was an undergrad in college, my mother became disabled virtually over night after what she thought was a back injury at work. After many visits to specialists, countless tests and invasive imaging procedures (including a myelogram which left her feeling even worse), she was told there was nothing that could be done for her. She was put on antidepressants and pain medication and told she would just have to live with the pain. During this time, I lived at home with her and helped care for her. We did not give up and kept searching for answers. Finally she went to a new general practitioner who spent a lot of time with her, asked her a ton of questions about her entire health history, did a thorough exam and told us he knew what was going on with her, and it was not her back at all. It turns out she was having extremely heavy periods and her uterus was enlarged and tipped back on her spine causing the pain in her back. He sent her for a pelvic ultrasound and the diagnosis was confirmed. She had a hysterectomy and as quickly as the back pain had appeared, it now disappeared. From this point on, I was inspired to become a doctor who looked for the underlying cause of illness and not just treat symptoms. And, most importantly, I never give up on my patients and keep searching for solutions to help them heal.
