Bilateral Coxa Valga / low back pain.

I’m currently waiting on scans to help assess what is causing my back pain. I’m having difficulty weight bearing on one side too and taking a lot of painkillers...but nothing taking pain away effectively 
is there anyone who has had similar experiences or could offer advice?

    Hi @rainbowstar  I feel for you. I have degenerative lumbar spine and sacrilitus. I cannot stand in one place too long or walk very far its painful. I take amitriptyline for the nerves. It doesn't get rid of the pain, it just means i can sleep at night. Physio is good but since lockdown i haven't been motivated to do it. I'm starting back up in the New year. I do wish you all the best?
