I'm a 25 years old male student. Fell from a mango tree 14 years ago and landed on my back; felt serious pains in the back, but quickly recovered the same day after taking some pills and deep-heat spray.
Six years later, I started feeling uncomfortable whenever I sit down (in this period, it's important to note that I was doing some jobs that required carrying heavy equipments). From 2008 December till now, the pains have never ceased for one second. Gets very bad and unbearable whenever I sit; so, I resort to lying down to study and kneeling down in class (now master's level). I look very normal, play soccer and can do just about every other things humans do(though in pains) apart from lifting heavy things and sitting down comfortably now. So, one can never tell I have a problem unless I mention it.
Have done about 8 different xray these periods, with all coming out clean. Got the result of the second MRI today(from another country, China), and just like the first one, the result is clean too. All blood and urine tests have been fine too.
My challenges are that, having taken dozens of pain killers, the pains never stops for a moment unless I lie down facing up or standing. As well as the inability of over 22 different doctors from two countries to have a clue about what's wrong with me.
Please kindly assist me with necessary information because a good percentage of my income goes into this with no result to show for it. And I want to feel what's like once again to live without pains.
