Do you know if thoracic spinal pain can mimick lumbar (low back) pain? I've had so much pain and so many problems that indicated low back pain but I wonder if it's my T-spine mimicking L-spine pain because they didn't see anything major in my MRI 7 months ago. I had another MRI yesterday and will be going to a 3rd opinion on Monday. Help! I HAVE to get some pain relief no matter what it is. My lower back on the right side, my right hip and right leg is KILLING me. I can't stand long enough to take a shower or cook, etc. It's only getting worse... could it be something else making us think it's my lower spine? I don't have any female organs except an ovary on my left side so it can't be that. What else could it be but my lower back? I'm almost at my witts end... my 2nd opinion doctor prescribed Hyrdrocodone (Vicodin) and I do not want to take this stuff for pain for a long time... even this doesn't take the pain totally away!! What now???
