I came across this forum whilst searching my symptoms online and hoped that i can speak with anyone whom has experienced the same pain as i have...Heres hoping & could shine some light on what you think...
It started a couple of weeks ago (the serious pain)
I have experienced lower bad back for some time just on the spot of my lower spine where i had an epi dural during child birth, The pain has never been sever till 2 weeks ago that i called the doctor as my lower left back was in absolute agony , i was prescribed ant inflammatory tablets which did nothing and pain persisted through the week, I went back and was given some (ant depressants, Muscle relaxers) which helped the back but then that dissapeared and spread to just my left bum cheek .
I was advised to stop the anti inflams as they only help back pain, and now the pain has gone from my back & Buttocks and is just in my Thigh & Calf left side still, & the pain is chronic after i have sat down for a while (I work sat down on a chair)
The pain is almost like an intense Cramp and once i have stood up and stretched it for 20 seconds or so the pain dies down, But the pain returns if i bend down or sit on the toilet as such.
I am only 27 i am a mother to a 5 year old and its really getting me down, I have physio booked for 9th April but have cried so much with the pain please help diagnose....
