Hi. I am a 55 yr old woman. Back on 4th of July, I hurt my back. I have been in pain management since August. I am on Tramadol, Meloxicam, Gabapentin, and now on Methocarbam. I have been told that my MRI showed that I have herniated 3 disks in my back. L1-L2, L3-L4, and L5-S1. Seems I hurt every other disk. Has anyone else did this? I am now starting shots in the back. Had my first shot on the 11th of this month and enjoyed only 2 days of being pain free. I thought is was suppose to last longer than that


Welcome to Spine-Health

It would be very helpful if you could provide us with more details. Here are some questions that you
should answer:

  • - When did this first start?
    - Was it the result of an accident or trauma?
    - What doctors have you seen?
    - What Conservative treatments have you had? Which ones?
    - What diagnostic tests have you had? And their results
    - What medications are you currently using?
    - Has surgery been discussed as an option?
    - What is your doctor’s action plan for treating you?

Providing answers to questions like this will give the member community here a better understanding
of your situation and make it easier to respond.
