Hi my name is Kandi and like most of you, I also have extreme lower back pain. The pain is actually more in the buttocks area and right leg. I have been suffering from the lower back pain for a year and about 5 months ago I started getting the pain in the buttocks and now I am getting the pain down my right leg.
I got a steriod shot a week and a half ago with no real help. I had been taking loracet for pain and now I am taking loratab 5 and have no relief. I will be making an appointment with my Dr. today. I have been calling everyday to let him know the shot did not work and to find out what's next, he has yet to call back...so I guess I am going to have to go in.
