I recently had an X-ray on my back as pain was still strong after 5 months and several visits to osteopaths. X-ray showed osteoarthritis and compression fractures T10, T11,L1 and L4 - age of these uncertain. Osteoarthritic changesare seen in the facet joints at all levels. No other bony or joint abnormality is seen. Since had a DEXA scan (formal results still awaited) but technician said was osteoporosis.
My GP prescribed Iboprofun 2 x 800 mg which did not agree with me as I am allergic to anti-inflammatories. She does not know what else to prescribe. Tried contacting my pain specialist (for an earlier problem) but have not been successful. Any suggestions for pain relief, also allergic to codeine.
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
