So some time yesterday, my back started hurting. It had gotten progressively worse though the day. By 5pm, my whole body was shaking, like as with caffeine jitters. By the time I was done preparing dinner around 8ish, I couldn't stand without excruciating pain. The only way I could find any relief was by bending over. The pain is in my spine with burning and a sense of pressure in the muscles across my low back. It feels like my spine is crushing into itself when I stand, or sit up straight. Also, there is pain in my hip joint. I feel like its out of place or something, with the usual pain down the back of my leg to my knee. There is even a little pain in my left hip, which is unusual. I rubbed some Icy Hot on my low back last night, which seemed to help with the burning and pressure feeling in my muscles, but thats about it. I went to bed hoping that I would feel better in the morning.
Guess not! I still can hardly stand, and cannot take my med for 3 more hours.
These were all of my original symptoms, and were my reason for demanding an MRI.
I don't know why I am posting this, accept to vent I guess. Its all a little upsetting to me. My doctor has me on 60mg Kadian twice a day, and it has been so helpful up till now. It feels as if I'm taking nothing at all. I can hardly walk, let alone pick up my son, and I don't know what to do.
Anyone else here experience this?? Complete return of the pain, even while on meds???
