Hi! I'm a 39y/o married female who has suffered w chronic back pain since 1997. Though in the last 2 mths things have gotten worse. I seem to have some kind of arthritis popping up in different locations to the point that its debilitating. About 2 wks ago I woke up w my left foot throbbing & I couldn't stand to walk on it. Since it was the weekend my hubby took my to our Urgent Care. They took an X-ray & drew blood. They said it was arthritis & not gout or anything else. I knew I already had arthritis in my back. Slowly my foot seems to be getting better. It's still painful,but at least I can walk on it now. My left hip had bothered me for awhile, but today the region around my hip is in immense pain. Including my left groin area & left pubic bone. Has anyone else had pubic bone pain? The area just started real bad like my foot did. My hands have ached deep in my joints for a very long time & they also have a burning/tingling sensation as do both my feet. FYI, I don't have diabetes either. I can't stand to sit cause the pain is too bad. When this started a couple mths ago the pain is worse in my low back, down my L hip & buttock & clear down my left leg. I went to a pain mgmt doc who did a diagnostic medial nerve branch block on L2 - L5 w hopes of doing an ablation. It did nothing but intensify the pain. He then told me there was nothing else he could do for me! I've been seeing a pain medication mgmt doc for sometime, but the meds aren't helping. He has me on a Fentanyl Patch 75mch every 48hrs, MSIR 30mg max 4 every 24hrs & Zanaflex 4mg 3 a day. My PCD has me on Meloxicam which at this point is doing nothing for me. Several yrs ago I had a SCS implanted which done wonders for me, but it kept malfunctioning so they took it out. At the time they didn't want to turn right around & put another one in. Now this doc at first told me he'd let me try one again now he can't make up his mind. I went for the psych Eval which went fine. So I feel like I'm up a creek w/o a paddle right now. It's gotten to the point where its hard to take care of myself let alone the house. It's really helped me to read what everyone else has written on here!! I pray you all find pain relief & answers!! I apologize for rambling on & hope this makes some sense!
