Thank you for viewing my post. I appreciate any advice or experience that you guys may share.
I am a 22yr. old and have chronic back pain and recently leg pain. I have seen many different doctors including physical medicine doctors, back surgery specialists,anesthesiologists and been in a chronic back pain special program. I am currently in physical therapy and have tried chiropractic, acupuncture, tens and massage therapy with no relief.
I have lower back pain and upper back pain with pain radiating down the right buttock all the way down the back leg to the bottom of my foot. According to the doctors I have seen I have a slightly pinched nerve on L4-L5 and Degenerative Disc Disease appearing in between L4-L5. The spine surgeon specialist(s) that I have seen say that back surgery will not help and is not an option.
I currently am on fentanyl 50mcg patch every two days and oxycodone 5mg 3x a day. I also take meloxicam for inflammation.
Any information on what could be causing all this pain or what may help me would be extremely helpful. Thank you everyone and I pray that all of you feel better.
