I've been having massive back pain for over a year and a half. I've had on and off again pain since I was 15, that was my first time in PT. I have had three ESI's in the past few months and now they are about to do a facet block. I don't know much about this but I'm hoping it will help. I can't live like this anymore. I can't pick up my children. I can't go to the the store and shop because I end up in so much pain. Folding laundry, is next to impossible and I just feel like all hope is gone.
After the third injection my Dr wanted me to think about surgery but since my leg is not causing porblems at the moment he's holding off on that. Someone told me I will most likely be in pain for the rest of my life and I'm only 22.
I just need to vent a little bit to people that understand. My family are very supportive but they just don't understand. We try to joke about my using a cane but deap down inside it kills me. I know there are people in worse shape and I shouldn't complain but I just can't help feeling the need to cry everytime I get let down and have to try something new.
My Dr. just doesn't listen to me. I'm on Norco, Gabapentin(sp) and Robaxin (sp) and of course the cure all Motrin. These are fine for my mild pain. But when I get down to the point of using the cane and having someone home to help me with the kids I need something stronger. The pain is just too much. I really want to pick up my 7 month old child and can't. As a mom it's heartbreaking. Sorry for this, I didn't mean for it to get so long. Just have a lot on my mind that I need to get out.
