This is my first season of cold weather accompanied with with a fusion. How do you deal with the cold weather back pain???? I can't get warm! Sometimes the pain is so bad for the cold weather, I can hardly stand it. I can't walk, stand, lay down to get comfortable. The other night I was in bed by 6:30P in tears until finally I feel asleep. Pain meds dont even help me. Is there anything I can do to just help ease it. I don't want to ice my back as I am already freezing- My NS don't want me using heat on it either.
What is your experience?
