Hi everyone, I'm jodie. This is my first post on here.
My troubles all started a few years ago when I suddenly got sciatica so bad that my left leg convulsed and my friend had the catch me before I fell. It did not improve over 2 weeks so my GP ordered CT scan which revealed quite a few problems as stated above (all in my lower back) along with arthritis at s1 and very mild curvature of the spine. This was after I had given birth to my second son at 19. They believe it happened while I was pregnant as I experienced severe pain late pregnancy (possibly picking my eldest son up the wrong way)
I've recently just given birth to my little baby girl and the pain has returned worse than ever. The pain traveling higher in my back as well. I go in to have an MRI done today to see what more damage has been done.
The only thing helping with the pain is endone which I try not to use because I'm still breastfeeding.
Physio does not help, it just aggravates it to the point I'm screamimg in pain. I constantly feel like I have back labor pains
Any advice would been extremely appreciated.
Thank you for reading my story.
