I'm 17 years old and I have been suffering with horrible back pain since November of 2012. Iv'e tried physical therapy, two chiropractors, I've seen an orthopedic surgeon, I've had a clean x-ray, and a normal MRI. My parents are really busy and don't really know what else to do so they've stopped trying. Originally the pain was in my neck and upper-back but now it feels as if it's on my whole spine and less in my neck. The orthopedic surgeon said it's probably a muscle issue. I am very strict about icing and ibuprofen but it doesn't really help. Sitting worsens it so I only go to school for two periods now and the rest of my work I do at home. I sleep with a body pillow on my side or on my back. My ribs are often sore especially when I wake up but other than that it's strictly along my spine. I'm sore all the time and If I don't relieve it by laying flat on the ground or upside down, it becomes more of a stabbing pain. When I lie on the ground or on a foam roller the pain is so immense and it takes my breath away but it feels a bit better afterwards for a few minutes. I've started dreading waking up because when I'm unconscious I don't have to fell it unless it wakes me up which it often does a few times a night. It's really making me depressed and question weather living is worth the pain.I don't know how much longer I can live like this. I'm really scared I'm going to live with this forever and I don't know what else to do. Please help me.
