I am having a lower back MRI scan on Monday to try and ascertain what is wrong with my back.
I have frequent very painful back spasms which result in me being immobile for 1-2 days. I am also having general high levels of pain by caused by spasms and for the past 3 days I've been unable to walk unaided. Getting out of bed is near on impossible. Which is not fun when I have a 12 week old baby and a toddler! This has been going on for 2 months but just gets worse and worse. I feel like a terrible mum! Physio just makes it very painful as does the chiropractor.
I am on diazapam (which isn't stopping spasms), naproxen and codeine.
I have an MRI on Monday but am concerned it won't show what's wrong. Is this likely? Some experienced words of advice would be great.
