I am in my 9th week of absolutley unbareable pain in my lower back. i have suffered for years with a bad back and after having an mri scan, was diagnosed with degenertive disc disease.
My current flare howevere is unlike anything i have ever experienced. I literally cannot sit, lie down, stand or walk for longer than 2 minutes. The pain travels right down to my foot and have nagging dull shock like pain in my buttocks, thigh and calf. Unbareable agony, and worse at night resting in no sleep.
I am taking the highest dosage of gabapentin,along with naproxen but again they dont seem to be even touching the sides, and have terrible side affects.
I have seen a physiotheripitst who has given me stretches to do, which arent helping, or too difficult and painful.
I am on a waiting list for the hospital to get another scan to see what is going on, but this can take upto 8 weeks. I have no way of life at the minute.
Does anyone have any advice, im starting to worry this will never get better.
