Back pain

I have a bad neck with pinched nerve, and it goes down my spine into my low back. I am wondering if any other people have this pressing downward feeling. What do you do to help yourself.

  • Hi,

    I don't experience this but I guess the first question is have you seen a doctor about this? I hate to recommend anything without knowing what's causing it. Typically an orthospine or neurosurgeon can assess you and if they think it's appropriate, send you for PT.

    I found 6 PT sessions to be very useful in managing my back issues for 17+ years. I hope you can find relief in that.

  • I'm glad you found our humble abode here at S-H! :-) There are many articles & video in addition to the message boards here, so I hope that you'll take some time to peruse the place a bit (if you haven't already).

    I would suggest you see a Dr about this, specifically one that is board certified with a Spine specialty. Often times an MRI & other diagnostic tests are required in order to know for certain what is causing our back/neck pain. If you're in a lot of pain, you should also see about being referred to a Pain Management specialist who is trained in keeping our pain to the lowest amount possible, often restoring our ability to carry on doing daily life activities.

    I hope that you will stick around, and keep us updated as you have appointments & possibly get a diagnosis as to what is going on. If you have other questions, please feel free to ask! There are many of us here that have years of experience as "spineys" and/or "neckies" and we're all more than happy to help in any way we can! :-)

    Take good care!
