Hello wonderful spine Health people.
My low back is a mess. I am in so much back and leg pain, that i feel like i'm on the brink of crying most of the time. But i have a young daughter, so most of the time i'm sucking it up and trying to act like nothing's wrong, for her sake. She has started saying her back hurts, which breaks my heart, and asking daddy when the doctors will fix mommy. both of which just make me feel guilty.
I work a full time desk job (software engineer for online fashion retailer). Sitting in that desk is what kills me more than anything. it hurts so much. I move a cm in one direction the wrong way and get a lightning bolt of pain shooting though my body. It is wearing me out. I am in so much pain by the end of the day after working and commuting, that when I get home I just want to take pain meds and go to sleep. I don't have any life left in me for my family. I feel like I'm a complete failure as a mother and a wife.
I know you guys know what I am talking about when I say the pain is so intense it makes my scalp tingle.
Also, I work for a fashion company. and as a woman at a fashion company, I can tell you I don't feel very fashionable walking round the office with a droppy foot.
Is anybody else out there working a 9-6 when you are burning in pain inside and just want it to end?!? IT's killing me. I feel like it is literally killing me. pushing all day through so much pain just to work and bring home a paycheck to my family.
