Hello everyone. I'm new here so please bear with me.
last year in July I was involved in a van crash where I was hit from behind pretty hard!
I have since suffered badly badly with chronic back pain, right near the base of my spine. I have recieved physio via the third party's insurers. I was on co-dydramol for 9 months, then upped to tramadol, then that was upped to morphine two months ago now. I have recently had an MRI scan and the lady who performed in reckoned she could see two bulged discs, yet my gp who got the results 3 days later said there wasn't any! I don't have any faith in him so am seeing another on Friday and hoping to get a copy of the report..
When the physio presses on the joint. I get a horrendous pain in the joint. Then when she rubs the area, it goes numb and tingly. My legs also feel numb most of the time.
I'm completely at a loss now and fast losing the will to get out of bed each day. With my GP saying he doesn't think there is much else to be done!
I have discussed it with a friend and he reckons my symptoms are the same as his when he slipped a disc. I find it very painful to sit upright, stand still for a minute or so. The only comfortable position is to lie down.
Could anyone give me any advice? Please!!!!
