Well i'm 22 years old, ive had upper back pain for 6 years now, had 3 physiotherapists, an osteopath, acupuncture, pain management service, pain clinic appointments. I've tried all sorts of pain medicenes, however the MRI said there was nothing wrong with my back or spine. The doctors have now told me i have to put up with the pain however no pain medication because ive tried everything they can prescribe, apart from morphine which they dont want to put me on because of my age.
I have today asked for a second opinion of my MRI and also being referred to a hospital based pain clinic which might have other techniques. Do i give up on seeking help for my pain and accept that i have to just deal with this pain all of my life?
I have to lay on the floor at home and at work to stretch and crack my back when it gets really painful, i cant stand still for even an hour. Can anyone give any words of wisdom or help?
Also i have seen a bonesetter, 3 appointments and he says i have a disc protrusion, 2 vertabrae that arent in line and a tilted pelvis, however my doctors wont take this seriously or even have a look at my back.
