I got my MRI T-Spine results. They showed mild degenerative disc disease in thoracic area, a mild disc bulge at T6, and renal lesions. With the pain I've been having for over a year now, These results make me want to curl up under a rock and through my hands up in the air!!!! How could the pain be as severe as it is and the MRI was basically normal? I don't feel like there's any hope. I'm in PT now for the next two weeks. I've been on Lortab 10 and Soma 325 for past 4 months. Dr. tried me on a Butrans patch but they think I had a severe reaction to it. I went to the ER on Monday with the worst headache I've ever had in my life. It scared me because I thought it could be related to the pain patch. I was having severe head pain in my right frontal area and my pulse was 160 and I was drenched with sweat. They did a CT of Brain/Neck and only abnormality was a polyp in my sinus cavity. ER doc said the headache could be from the polyp.
Anyway, I feel like I'm gonna have this mid back pain forever. It affects my daily living so severe. I work at a desk and I'm having such a hard time throughout the day. I'm a mother to a 5 year old and it's so hard making it through the day trying to take care of him. Any words of wisdom or encouragement would be greatly appreciated.
