I have been suffering with \"back pain\" for 8 years now, the first time it happened, I got into my car rather fast, on a rainy day, and the pain was immidiate, but after a few hours I was in total agony. I was off work for 3 months, went to see a chiropractor twice a week for months too.
Over the years, my back has \"gone\" many mant times. I have had lots of time off work, and the pain usually subsides over a period of days, to weeks.
This time, however, 3 months ago, I was quite literally plumping the cushions up on my settee, and I felt the most horrendous pain in my back, I knew something else had happened. I spent a couple of weeks in total spasm and agony. Since then, the back has not been itself. Two weeks ago, the pain grew totally unbearable, Ive been walking like a letter S, crying in pain. I cant work, can hardly walk, and have not been able to dress my lower body since. My husband dresses me. I simply cannot get out of the chair, the pain is immense.
I went back to the same chiropractor I had seen years ago, willing to try anything. He was unable to do much, so bad was the pain, and the second time, I had only the tiniest massageing, to relieve the spasm, when I was coming off the table, I hadnt even moved, when an almighty spasm shot through me.
He said he couldnt treat me, as he thinks there is too much damage.
I am now waiting for an MRI scan, and Im scared, as this time there is no let up with the pain. Im starting to think there is something very wrong with my back, eg, cancer of spine????
Can anyone advise me or put my mind to rest. I am 45 years old, and have a few other aches and pains, due to total hysterectomy last year, and am constantly sweating, due to menopause.
