I am in extreme pain and have been for over 3 years it started at the age of 27 my lower back and legs are in agony and somehow i managed to fall pregnant, although coming of the medication was tough and the pain was excrutiating my little boy is now 4 months old, and this illness is ruining my life i need help to understand what this means i know it states minimal and mild i only wish the pain was mild, i get butrans patch, methocarbomol, co-codomol, its not working. any information or advice would be brilliant
