I have recently been suffering with back pain on a regular basis - in the last few months of cold weather I've even had to have time off work because it physically killed me to get out of bed - which is worrying for 23 years of age!
Had an MRI scan last month and i've just found out of i've the beginning stages of Osteroarthritis of the spine!!
Unfortunately for me, I have to wait 2 months before I get an appointment with a spinal specialist to talk phsyio treatment and injections (worst case scenerio apparently) and now I'm wondering what I'm to do in the mean time regarding pain relief?
I am already prescriped 15/500 Co-Codamol and Naproxyen rather than the 400mg Ibruprofen - I've found walking eases my pains alot but being in a sitting down office job, I cant spend all day on a walk.
I'm finding it difficult coming to terms with having this at such a young age, mainly because of knowing its going to get worse as I get older and I'm yet to experience Motherhood!
Any suggestions/advise or ideas on how to make this more of a bareable condition are most welcome..
