Help back pain!!!

Posted , 3 users are following.

I have had back pain for 5mths. MRI shows mild scoliosis, 6 protruding discs, 2 bulging and Schmorl nodes amongst some other findings! I'm having physio, acupuncture, tens pain relief and now on oral morphine! I have been told no heavy lifting and no horse riding (I own a horse) I'm waiting for what seems forever to see a specialist who now says they won't see me until I have had my physio. My next appt for that is 7wks away! I so desperately need to know what's going on with my back and what to expect but I'm not getting any help! Someone please help me with any advice 😕

      Go Private if you can the experience I've had with the NHS has been awful no one seems to care or want to help me 7 gps all said no too MRI scan its was only when I lost my feeling in my feet and toes which i still have phyiso and hydro was a waste of time the girl I saw was not interested in treating me at all left with more pain Now I'm seeing a foot specialist As the specialist said my back was fine

      Yet I'm left in agony every day tramdol and amitripline has helped me sleep it seems you need too push hard to get anything done my fingers and hands are suffering too 7 weeks is a joke to see someone it's a mess and a very large one

      OMG that's sounds horrendous! Poor you! Glad you are seeing someone now and getting some relief!

      Your right though you do have to really push to get anything done!

      All I want is to be seen and examined properly by as specialised! Then maybe I can get towards an end to all this pain

      I really feel for you as I know it is so frustrating then putting the constant pain on top, it's very draining!

      Don't take it personally though as I'm sure it's not just you!

      I'm grateful at least that I got my MRI at least!

      Also the affect it has on your everyday life is tremendous x
