Degenerative exacerbation of a preexisting condition

edited 01/17/2015 - 10:50 PM in Lower Back Pain
I was born with Osteogenisis Inperfecta, 56 incidents. many of which resulting in multiple fractures. (I'm no stranger to pain) I have since been diagnosed as having also developed Osteoporosis. In the years leading up to October 10th 2012 I had noticed a steady increase in constant pain. however on the date mentioned I was almost paralyzed from a cough. the shock contraction split my L2 vertebrae leaving my in an embarassed lump on the bathroom floor. Hospitalised for a week, I recieved a spinal fusion. (Dr wanted to fuse 5 vertebrae, however only fused 2 upon seeing the condition of my spine eyes on). after the fact I find out the fusion was placed in my vertebrae wings. Now the lower. half of my body feels like its going to burst at all time. I scream in my sleep and I have to pull my knees into my chest to aleave the pressure. Now receiving epidural steroids and my legs after injection are on fire and the skin feels like its wrapped in plastic to the touch. Anyone out there hear of anything like this? any input what-so-ever? I'm not a winer, but I'm in hell.
