Hello, I am a 36 year old female. I am new to any type of forum so please bare with me. For about 10-12 years I have had pain and trouble with my neck and back. Mostly right neck pain and stiffness and lower back pain. I have managed it pretty well with muscle relaxers, tylonal, heating pads, ect. Gone to the doctors and hospital a number of times when the pain gets to bad. Usually, the doctors right me off and say that it is just a muscle spasm, give me some flexeral and send on my way. I have never had any test or other type of treatment done.
Recently, about two weeks ago I went to the doctors because my siatica started up again. Said I was fine, gave me muscle relaxers and a steriod pack. Normally, that tends to help but this time there has been no improvement in the pain. The siatic pain moved to my left leg and the pain moves from my leg, lower back, center back and neck. Each day, it seems like something different. There are time that it can be unbearable. I know there is something wrong and I have said it for years, but I can't get someone to listen to me. Mostly because they say I am young and that I had no actual injury to my spine. I can deal with the daily pain, I just feel like I need some kind of test to see what the problem actually is, but they all refuse to do so. I am worried it is some type of autoimmune disorder. Almost every person on my mothers side has some type of autoimmune and since my symptoms are all over the place, I feel like it could be something of that nature. But I am not sure. Maybe someone on this forum can help steer me in the right direction, or has the same symptoms or something.
