Hello everyone my name is liam ,I am 46 and I have suffered low back pain for twenty years.It started with my back locking up and pounding pain with reduced mobility but these days the pain is centered on the very bottom of my spine and right ON my spine.It is a pain I find hard to describe.It is like a burning pain but at the same time it is ice cold and is a pain beyond any other ever felt.It is relentless and extreme and drives me out of my mind.I cannot think straight for it.I cannot read, walk, rest,watch tv or do anything else because this pain utterly and totally overwhelms my body and mind.It consumes my entire existence.It causes me to roll in circles in bed , I cannot sit for more than minutes and I cannot walk more than minutes.This pain makes me grind my teeth and feel like I literally want to die.It makes time slow to a crawl and a minute is like day.
I cannot find the words to accurately describe this pain.
I take Oxycodone 80 mg twice per day plus a top up of fast release Oxycodone 20mg up to four times per day and even all that cannot stop this pain when it is really bad.
I have had pain killing injections into my spinal facet joints but I had a bad allergic reaction to it.I have had physio.I have lost two stones in weight and that helped a bit.I try to keep active but it becoming impossible.
I really am desperate now.
Does anybody here know what i am trying to describe? Has anybody any advice?
