after suffering with my back for roughly 5 years . i virtually begged my doctor for an x tay . the findings were spondylitic spondylolisthesis . . the dramatic effect on my life and mobility is obvious , and i do not think that people realise this . from the moment i wake and stand upright , i experience intense stiffness aching , tingling and burning sensations from my lower back down into my legs . i can no longer stand for more than ten minutes ,before i completly seize up . i experience weakness and shaking of my legs . i think what is worse is that after all this time i was hoping that something could be done and that i could return back to my job as a florist . but with my job involving a lot of standing this is impossible . the only thing i have been offered is painkillers and a stronger anti inflamatory medication . the only thing that relives my back is bed rest , and if i were never to get out of bed again then i would be pain free . the quality of my life has been effected dramatically .
