please consult with Orthopedic physician for finding the cause and choosing the best treatment for your case.
Hi there, I am sorry to hear you are suffering so much, my brother suffers from arthritis in his spine and has terrible pain wether he is sitting standing or laying down.One thing that really helped him was seeing a pain doc that specializes in back pain and she helped him locate his "trigger points" which are tight area's in your back muscles ,there is a book out there that deals with this I can't think of the name but if you type in "trigger points" along with back pain you should find it, I will take a look myself and leave a comment if I find it.One other thing that has helped is him taking a bath with epsom salts.You can find epsom salts at any drug store and they are cheap, but having a soak in a hot bath with these epsom salts sure helps ,
as well as ibuprofen.Sometimes it takes awhile to find what will work best for you,I would recommend seeing a pain doctor if you can and they can help find what will be best for you.Good luck,I will post when I find the name of the book.Take care and hang in there, this site is a great resource !
I too, started having extreme lower back pain, 2 years ago, after an auto accident. After Xrays and MRIs, it was concluded that I had herniated discs at L4 and L5 with bulging discs at L3, L4. Also, entire spinal cord covered with osteo arthritis, and curvature of spine. My sciatic nerve was pinched. I first rcvd a steroid shot in hip,(excrutiating after for about 30 hrs). I then opted for physical therapy, which brought little to no relief. Then had series of epidurals, no help. I was advised I need bone fusion surgery. Wouldn't do after months of watching those who had had it rcvng no relief and complications. Plus the odds of working were 50/50. Not good enough odds in my book for that invasive of a surgery. I did have surgery to have the siactic nerve removed from between the herniated discs. Got relief for that immediately, but my nightmare thus began. Kept havin CSF leaks, which resulted in 2 more surgeries.
On the 3rd surgery, my stomach and bowels shut down, I had a TIA, and to date am now under pain management. Not trying to scare you. See your doctor, get his advise on treatment, however I urge you not to resort to surgery. Everyone reacts differently, but I'd give anything to go back, and follow different options. Good Luck to you.
Have you talked to a physician about your back problem? If not, the first stop is your family doc as there are varied steps to finding out the cause of your pain. Your family doc may want you to undergo a variety of tests including blood work, x-rays, CT Scans, etc. Depending on the results of tests, one will then have a starting place from which to try and attempt to relieve your back pain. Your doc may want to prescribe any of a number of different pain meds including hydrocodone.
Just follow doc directions, but be sure to let him/her know if the treatment is effective or not. If the pain isn't being relieved,something else will have to be tried. Living and working and housework are hard enough without being in constant pain.
Take care and anymore questions, we'll be here.
