Started getting back pain a year ago, it very quickly got worse and I had to give up working in September.
I have been attending GP regularly and have had various painkillers etc, which I need to top up with Paracetamol due to the amount of pain I get.
I got an MRI scan and an appointment was made for me to see Consultant...June 12 \"not long now\" to treat my disc prolapse and anything else connected with my back problem. :?
The pain I have has been getting worse as the days go on, pain radiating from my back right down both legs and to my feet. Weird tingling sensation like someone sticking something sharp & hot into you. Recently both hips feel like they have been bruised, as if I lie on either side, I am in agony, so forever moving position trying to get comfy, even sleeping tablets at bedtime don't give me more than a couple of hours sleep.
My legs have given way on a couple of occasions, so I fear having a shower on my own, ot doing the little things I used to do, like walking to shop.
The pain makes me feel sick as well & don't know if it's the medication or the pain, but sweat drips off me, so I feel really embarrassed and our social life is badly effected. I am so down and depressed, I have been prescribed anti-depressants, but can't see any difference to my moods.
:oops: I am also running to loo all the time, but cannot go. :roll: I am at the end of my tether, and if it wasn't for my man, I dread to think what I would have done. Don't know how he puts up with me snapping all the time. I know there are a lot of people worse of than myself, but don't want to be like this for the rest of my life, I can't even play with my grand-daughter without crying with pain. Even lying in bed with heatpad on my back writing this, as the pain is driving me mad. Pity Euthanasia isn't allowed in this Country. At least I would be free of pain. JUST HAVE TO HOPE the Consultant can do something.
