Hi I was just wondering if anyone can give me some advice to get me through the next few weeks while I wait for scans and referral to a back specialist. I'll try and keep it short! When I was pregnant (he's 18months now) I suffered from hyperemises (severe sickness & dehydration) and was sick 20+ times a day, as you can imagine I ended up with a lot of back pain and labour made it worse. Over the last year- 6months the pain has gotten alot worse. Running from where my shoulder blades end and about 4-5 discs down towards the base of my back has gone completely numb. I cant feel any sensation on the skin and apart from the normal pain I have an intense burning sensation constantly, getting worse with movement. I'm really struggling with day to day life and am getting regular migraines. if I tilt my head forward my back goes into spasm and I am now getting the same burning pain in my neck, does this sound like herniated discs or chord compression? Everything I look at on google related to my symptoms suggests that could be the problem, ANY help would be greatly appreciated, tia, Sarah
