lower back pain

Posted , 7 users are following.

Good evening everyone. I have CS which as decided to have a flare up just in time for christmas wonderful.😟 I was just wondering if anybody also has lower back pain. My consultant as told me its due to my muscles in

lower back compensating for neck problems. I now have pain in hips and my coccyx. Plus I have had an headache on and off for over a week now.

I only see the nurse now for CBT therapy,as my consultant as said no more treatment. Ive had tens machine, acupuncture, epidurals, facet injections

and a lignocaine infusion to which none have helped.

I also found out after my second MRI a year ago I have foraminal

stenosis aswell. Sorry for rambleing on.

Thanks for taking the time to read this Paula

    Stick to your guns Paula, you know better than anyone what helps or hinders your CS.my memory foam topper and pillow are the best thing ever and give me some peace and comfort when I'm not feeling well and I will never give them up.

    I've been experimenting with my meds and taking more muscle relaxant and cutting down on the Tramadol, this appears to be helping as I am

    having less side effects, but early days so keeping fingers crossed.

    Gentle hugs to all.

    I think there's a lot of us holding off on medication changes over the holliday period. It's difficult sometimes knowing what to do for the best, on

    one hand we are willing to try anything to ease our pain and suffering

    but on the other hand we don't want to make things worse. I think this is

    where the saying" Stuck Between a Rock and a Hard Place"comes in.

    Gentle hugs Sheila xx
