Hi everyone, just signed up today. Didn't know there was a site for back pain. Here's my story. Every 18 to 24 months my back gives out and ends up causing me major spasms for 2-3 days. Often the trigger is nothing more than stepping out of the shower. The other day I wast getting out my computer chair.
It starts by sharp pain in lower back. After a few minutes, my spine goes crooked, noticeable in the mirror and the way I walk. Then the spasms starts and I know I'm in for a few days of bed ridden hell , that's what I call it because I have not had a more severe pain at anytime in my life. I just underwent open heart surgery 12 weeks ago and the pain was nothing compared to these spasms. You can feel the spasm coming and then it intensifies to the max and slowly subsides.
I've been to the doctor a few years ago and they did take ex-rays, don't remember what they said but I will be going
back to find out.
Do these symptoms compare to anyone else having them on the board, in other words, are they typical of a certain diagnostic?
Thanks in advance.
Oh yeah, my neck spams are from an old diving accident. At least I know why I'm getting those.
