I have been waking up with chronic lower back pain for the past 2 years now. It wakes me up around 4am daily and I have tried many things to reduce the pain to no success. Normally as I walk around in the morning the pain goes away but it is taking longer for that to happen these days. I have been to many doctors all of which do not know what is wrong. I have had a nucear test on my spine which seperates the spine into tiny parts to look for any damage, but nothing was found. It feels as if I have 2 hard rods in by back going up next to my spine - so thinking something muscular?
I also have a very tender coccyx which again the test show that it is not broken - but when I sit on a hard surface it really hurts for me to stand up again.
I am both scared and exhausted by this pain - it started 2 months after my 3rd c-section but apparently this is just coincidental.
I am also beginning to feel weakness in both my legs and occassionally I get numbness in my little toes for a short period of time during the day.
Does anyone have any ideas as to what could be wrong??? I am seeing my doctor again tomorrow afternoon so I could perhaps suggest any of your ideas to him if possible??
