i have been on oxygen since 2012 16 hours a day for my copd I have a lung capicity of 21%. I had severe back pain from November 2013 to March 2014 two x Rays showed up nothing was wrong then I got a mri scan done I had to be sedated to lie down flat that showed my whole lumber spine had collapsed and two vertabrae's in the middle of my back had collapsed too. I have now been diagnosed with Osteoporosi and the pain is unbearable. My gp prescribed oral morph but the consultant I see at hospital put a stop to it because of my copd. I have been prescribed tramodel pre-gabilin paracetamol and a few other's which do absolutely nothing. My go has now prescribed diazepam three 5mg a day. And this does help. I am getting so down and depressed with my back. I can't even lie down flat in my bed and I am up most nights I have had bone density scans and this shows thinning of the bones. I am only 52 by the way. My hubby does everything like housework shopping etc. I have also started getting pains in my legs & feet when walking and am praying I don't go off my legs. Am now scared the doc I see at the hospital for my copd now stops the diazepam. It has eased my back abit but not totally. Does anyone have any ideas for me as I can't take much more I am so depressed and don't want Ma husband under anymore stress. Thankyou for taking the time to read this. X
