Hi I’m hoping someone can help, I’m really struggling. I’m only 20 years old and I have back pain ever since I can remember. I broke my pelvis 4 years ago and whenever I go to the doctors they just say that I will have back pain from the accident, but they don’t listen to me when I say I’ve had back pain before I broke my pelvis. They just link them together and say that’s why. I have been back and forth to the doctors and all they say is physiotherapy, far enough I’ve tried it and have been referred there for the forth time now and it just isn’t doing anything. I have been to an osteopath and I cannot physically afford to go there every 2 weeks because that’s how often she wanted to see me! I’ve had x-rays god knows how many times. My osteopath even thought I might have arthritis, I was only 18 then!
I have a constant pain right in the middle of my spine, it’s always there no matter what I do. My lower back has always hurt ever since I was 8! I can’t sit, lay down, drive do anything without my lower back hurting, I has always been that way. I sometimes get a shooting pain through my back and I can’t physically move until the shooting pain has gone. I struggle to go to the toilet because it’s painful, it’s painful sneezing/coughing etc. When I’m in extreme pain or been to work for a few hours I can barely move my left leg, it sort of feels numb (it’s hard to explain) like it isn’t my life so to speak. I’m even struggling to sleep at the moment because of the pain and that has never stopped me sleeping before.
I’m here as a last resort because I honestly don’t know what to do. The doctors aren’t listening to me or taking my seriously. I don’t know if I should demand a MRI or for them to look further into it but they just keep transferring me to physiotherapy.
Thank you to anyone that can help or replies it’s much appreciated, I keep breaking down and I don’t know what else to do. Thank you
