Good morning All,
I am a 41 year male suffering from recurrent bouts of lower back pain. This has been going on now for approx 9 years. At the moment I have been off work for 3 weeks under the instruction of my Doctor. Prescribed various pain relief Diazapam, Tramadol etc which I am reluctant to take because of the various scare stories ref side effects. Under the treatment of physio and been referred to for scan.
What is worrying me is that I will have to just bear with this and accept that every year I will have to suffer my usual attack of pain. Also when my scan appointment arrives if I then have no pain is it still worth carrying out the scan? Will anything show up?
I live in Wigan Manchester England and the weather is always wet and damp which I suppose does not help!!!
Any advice appreciated
Love to all
