i am a female 18 years old and i have had extreme back pain for going on 4 months now. ive seen my family practice dr. he had xrays taken and they came back clear. he gave me an NSAID pain reliever to take for 10 days but it didnt even touch the pain. i am now seeing a physical therapist an am working on strenthing the muscles along with getting muscles massages from her to release some of the tension. i have been going to physical therapy for almost a month now and have seen some but little improvment. i am a college student and sitting in class in unbearable, when i get up from my seat i have to walk slowly and hunched over slightly. if i am in one position sitting standing or laying down for more than around 15-20 minutes i have stiffness and pain. its weird because i have more pain on my right side and on my spine near the arch of my back than i do on my left ( also some hip pain) i cant go on in pain anymore and am making an appt with an orthopedic surgeon. does anyone have any ideas to what could be going on?
i have had a fasiotomoy on both legs for compartment sydrome mrsa in my knee and was treated for a discoide lateral meniscus also in my knee, relation?
