Hi everyone.

Hoping to find some good info. here. I've had pain for about 15 years now and I'm finally going to take some action to correct it for good.

I see a physiotherapist once every 2 weeks, but I still have pain. The pain is at a 'managed' level..but I'm just so low on energy and have no desire to do anything EVER.

It's time to do something and I'm going to seek a back specialist out soon.

  • I am so sorry to here of your pain but glad to hear that you are able to keep the pain manageable. Often times there is no permanent cure for back pain so be careful. I was keeping my pain at a manageable level by having a rhizotomy done once a year. Last December my doc talked me in to surgery so that I would not need to do the yearly rhizotomy. Well, long story short my pain is no longer managed with yearly rhizotomy. The surgery actually made my pain worse. Good luck to you and please keep us posted.
  • :H And good for you! Chronic pain can affect so many aspects of your life. I'm glad to know that you are taking charge of it. We have but one life to live and shouldn't have to be in pain.

  • Do you have a pain management Doctor yet? They may be able to help. Take care. Charry
