Lifelong Battle! Lower back pain
I am a 25 year old female. Ive experienced lower back (can spread upwards as pain increases) since I was maybe 8. I’ve seen tons of doctors, pain management, orthopedics, chiropractors, you name it. I’ve had X-rays and MRIs, and everything comes back MOSTLY clear. I’ve been told I have degenerative disks, osteoarthritis, mild scoliosis, and “military neck”, but every doctor says the same thing “This doesn’t explain your immense pain. I can’t sleep without taking Gabapenten, Flexeril, and a handful of other meds. Without them i’m changing position every 30 minutes to an hour. I wake up in pain, I can’t sit in one position too long, and by the end of the day i’m in so much pain. I gave birth to my 3 girls from 2014-2018, vaginally. Every since then my pain is extreme. I can barely do anything psychical, i’m so moody, and exhausted mentally. I finally found a doctor who takes me serious. I’ve currently been on Cymbalta for 5 days now, for fibromyalgia. I don’t feel anything yet, but it can take a little while. I also am redoing physical therapy for like the 5th time, and my doctor wants to try trigger point injections. Does anyone else have any stories that are similar to mine?
