I'm new to this, and am hoping someone can offer some advice/help... I don't know what to do anymore!
I'm 23 and 9 years ago I started to get pain in my lower back, at the top of my pelvis. The pain radiates down around the the front of my back (into my groin), down my leg (tightens at my knee) and down to my foot. I also get pain in my shoulder blade - that pain also goes around my shoulder down my arm. It only happens on one side of my body. The pain ISN'T constant; it comes and goes.
I've been to a physiotherapist who said I had a tilted pelvis, and I was treated for that. No improvement. I had an MRI and X-Ray, which came up clear. I visited a chiropractor, which didn't help AT ALL. I went to a retired specialist who diagnosed slight scoliosis, and recommended swimming. Didn't help! I tried homeopathy - the guy said I had a trapped nerve and tried to release it, but that didn't work either. I've had injections in my back which don't help, nor does taking anti-inflammatories or painkillers. The only thing that provides relief is lying down and getting someone to give me a massage - although that only lasts temporarily. The pain gets worse after sitting down for long periods, which makes working hard.
I've spent so much money and seen so many people, I don't know what to do anymore... does anyone have similiar symptoms and had any luck with treating or even managing the pain? Like I said, it isn't constant, but it's frequent and unbearable.
I'd appreciate all the help/advice etc... A
