I had a l5 s1 microdisectomy, laminectomy in 8/2014. I have been having chronic pain in the lower back ever since I had the surgery. I am going to a pain manegment doctor who has given me many SI Joint injections that only last for a week or so at a time. He has me on robaxin and tramadol . I have been asking for another MRI to make sure that everything is ok and if not to see what the problem is. I started going to a rheumetoid doctor just recently that has put me on savella for fibro and celebrex for inflammation. He is going to be doing a MRI but i am wondering if any one has had the same issue as i have. I have pain after sitting to long, pain when pushed on lower lumbar region and for the last week bad pain when sitting or laying down. When i put my back up against the couch or chair it feels like i can feel something in my back but i know that there is nothing there, also has been burning..
What all test should i have to find out what is going on wiht my back to make sure that we are treating the right thing. I am 33 and want to get back to normal/
