Pain that is very strange and noone can't tell me what is the cause

Its been 3-4 mounts since this pain became everyday routine. Before that I had it twice for about 5 days.
I have great flexibility, especialy when I move more. I play yoga (from two mounts because it helps me to feel better and to have less pain during the day.) There is no position or movement that I can not do. BUT! When I go to bed and lay down for few hours the pain starts. First it was after 6 - 7 hours. At least I could sleep that long. Now it starts after 4 hours. These last days hurts even during the day if I dont play yoga or streching (but not much, not like after sleep). If I dont work out or strech I have a bit pain everywhere. But its nothing compared to what I feel every morning. I have no problems to get up from bed. I have no problems to stand up and start to work out for example. The problem is when I lay still. Then it hurts the most. It is around the sacrum (all the sacrum sides). Sometimes goes to the tail bone or to the front of pelvis. When I lay down the whole sacrum area hurts ......I have to get up to make it stop. Its crazy.....I cant sleep normaly. Sometimes its more in left. Sometimes I feel like these are two different pains and two different problems.
I went to neurologist - pills dont work (I cant take most of them.....but the one I took .,...didnt work)
we made also therapy with ultrasound and electricity - no result
Could it be the joints? I am going crazy.....I just dream about the day I will be able to go to bed and sleep normaly without pain.
Have you ever felt pain like that... It is very strange for me.... Usually people cant move. I move very well. Standing still.... is problem. I have to change my position on every 5 min in order to have less pain. Sometimes the pain is so strong that If I dont get up from bed I will go crazy. In the beggining I could get up and sit for like 30 min and the pain use to go away. Now it takes an hour or two.

Welcome to Spine-Health

One of the most important things that need members can do is to provide the rest of the community with as much information about themselves as possible. It is so very difficult for anyone to respond when we do not have enough information to go on. This is not meant to indicate that you are doing anything wrong or violated any rule, we are just trying to be pro-active and get the information upfront so that people can start responding and your thread is more effective.

So many times we read about members who have different tests and they all come back negative. The more clues and information you provide, the better chances in finding out what is wrong, The fact that your test results are negative does not mean that you are fine and without any concerns. Many times it takes several diagnostic tests and procedures to isolate a specific condition.

Here are some questions that you should answer:

  • - When did this first start?

    . Year, Your age, etc
- Was it the result of an accident or trauma?
- Are there others in your family with similar medication conditions?
- What doctors have you seen? (Orthopedic, Neurosurgeon, Spine Specialist, etc)

  • . Which doctor did you start with? Ie Primary Care Physician
    . Who are you currently seeing?
- What Conservative treatments have you had? Which ones?

  • . Physical Therapy
    . Ultrasound / Tens unit
    . Spinal Injections
    . Acupuncture
    . Massage Therapy
- What diagnostic tests have you had? And their results (MRI, CTScan, XRay, EMG, etc)

  • . Summarize the results, please do not post all details, we cannot analyze them
    . How many different tests have you had over the years? Similar results?
- What medications are you currently using? (details, dosage, frequency, etc)

  • . Name of Medication
    . How long have you been using this?
    . Results
- Has surgery been discussed as an option? (If so, what kind)
- Is there any nerve pain/damage associated?
- What is your doctor’s action plan for treating you?

Providing answers to questions like this will give the member community here a better understanding
of your situation and make it easier to respond.

Please take a look at our forum rules: Forum Rules

I also strongly suggest that you take a look at our FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) which can be found at the top of the forum menu tab or by going to FAQ There you will find much information that will

  • - Help you better utilize the Spine-Health system
    - Provide pointers on how to make your threads / posts
    - Tips on how to create your avatar (your picture), posting images, etc
    - General pieces of valuable information

Please remember that no one at Spine-Health is a formally trained medical professional.
Everything that is posted here is based on personal experiences and perhaps additional research.
As such, no member is permitted to provide

  • - Analysis or interpretation of any diagnostic test (ie MRI, CTscan, Xray, etc)
    - Medical advice of any kind
    - Recommendations in terms of Medications, Treatments, Exercises, etc

What could be good for someone could spell disaster for another.
You should also consult your doctor to better understand your condition and the do’s and don’t’s.

It is very important that new members (or even seasoned members) provide others with details about their condition(s). It is virtually impossible to help another member when all the details we have are

I’ve had this for years, it hurts, I cant move my shoulder – what could this be, what treatment should I get?

Diagnosing spinal problems can be very difficult. In many ways it’s like a game of clue. Especially, when the diagnostic tests come back negative – no trouble found! Then it’s up to the patient and the doctor to start digging deeper. The doctor is like a detective. They need clues to help them move along. So, you as the patient need to provide the doctor with all sorts of clues. That is like it is here. Without having information about a condition, its impossible for anyone here to try to help.

    rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, leukemia, or bone cancer.
    I don't think you have a back problem...you have a joint problem....IMHO.

    I, too, was wondering what kind of testing you have had?

    My primary tried to work with my pain two years before referring me to pain management doctor.
    Best thing for me!

    He did testing I didn't hear mentioned before.
    His testing to diagnose and to rule out issues.

    He also did sleep study on me.
    I didn't think he would see anything as I didn't think I slept well or enough.
    But he did and was able to treat me.

    My sleep may not be what most consider normal, but huge improvement and relief for me.
    I was so irritable and wanting to pull my hair out.

    So with sleep improved and pain management Doctor monitoring my spine and symptoms and edge taken off the pain...much more manageable days.
