hello everyone im a new member to 'spine-health' . Would love to hear from those of you who have experienced chronic lower back pain andare having problems with work as a result. iv been working as a home support worker for the elderly infirm and disabled for 4years now however in that time my back health has goe rapidly downhill and i am currently waiting to see a consultant after an xray showed a bone abnormality in my pelvis. although this may or may not be the cause of the problem i am also visiting an osteopath to try and alleviate the horrible pain i am encountering. i can barely look after my 3year old son and housework seems like climbing a mountain. i cant get in and out a bath and driving or sitting in a car is painful. iv tryed everything. im currently taking solpadol and ibuprofen for it but it doesnt help just makes me very tired. so my problem is i have been off work sick due to this recent flare up and im supposed to go back on tuesday. i ahve to drive around peoples homes delivering personal care and im worried sick about it. i know im going to be in pain but my husband and i are worried about money i tryed to bring the conversation up if i cant manage it he says i will just need to find something else i said what if i cant do it he said i cant sit at home for the rest of my life i need to get on with it im not an invalid (im 31years old). i never thought my life would be like this i used to be super fit and active with a full life now i never go anywhere can barely walk down the street and im worried sick about work money and the future. any advice would benefit me noone seems to understand what its like.
