Help! HELP! I have just about had enough.i have had ongoing back problems for about 8 years since moving furniture.following a mri I was told I had a bulging disc and disc degeneration.i was advised to lose a bit of weight and be careful making beds and sent on my way!Over the years with the occasional use of cocodmol, naproxen and diazepam I have adapted my life around an aching back and in general I am very careful with it.i lost some weight and did some back exercises and have probably had a major seize up once a year lasting about 5 days.however,3 weeks ago,bending down to a coffee table I pulled something and my back has got worse and worse.i tried working through the pain,I tried resting up but no relief.i am now in bed,one side of my back in total spasm.yesterday I had intense physiotherapy and today the pain is appalling.he told me it was a spasm.i want to hear from people how to deal with this pain,I'm on all my advised meds.how long does this intense pain last for??? I am female and 50 and the feeling of depression is totally absorbing me and I have had enough.
