It has been a long while since I posted here! I am experiencing burning pain in my low back. It is exhausting actually - I feel so run down these days and I think this is the cause.
The spinal area in the lower lumber is actually all numb. Physical therapists have mentioned that it is a large area that is numb - however it is the same area that feels "burning". It is internal burn not external (wouldn't be able to feel that).
I have a TENS machine, which is a wonderful but I am exhausted after using it. It is like my body has been trying to fight the pain - the TENS relaxes certainly helps but very temporary.
I have started YOGA - it seems any stretch of my lower back causes more burning - I practiced YOGA today for an hour - took a 3 hour nap. I finally took a percocet for the first time in 10 months tonight.
Which is why I am here again! - What does anyone know? Worth a Doc visit or is this just the way it is?
