Lower back pain
Apr 17, 2010
Hello everyone I have had my back "go out" on me at least once every year since I was a teenager and a dose of prednisone would have me back to normal after a few days. Well This time is different. I have been dealing with this issue for 3 months now with several dr. visits and chiro visits. I have been on two dosages of prednisone packs, mobic, ketorlac, flexiril, loracet(not all at the same times) and still not fully recovered. I have went for an x-ray and was told I might have the beginnings of arthritis in my L3, L4, and L5 and also that a bone at the base of my spine is pushed in a little but its a 1 out of a 4. now my doc is sending me to an ortho but not for two weeks. Okay the pain is in my lower back sometimes its a sharp pain sometimes a burning cramping feeling. Now that I can walk and stand straight again t mainly hurts when I sit. I also feel it going down my buttocks and leg sometimes when sitting. My neck is really sore also. I have lost 20 pounds since this bout has started and am trying to lose another 40 but doctors always want to put off back pain as caused by your weight. Also it has started hurting in the middle of my back now sometimes too. I have a two year old to take care of and a full time job where I am either standing up all day or sitting down at my computer for long periods. I am very depressed due to the lack of quality of life lately. I need opinions please?
