8 Months after Surgery -Constant Pain in Hips and Lower Back



  • Thanks for all the replies.....sleeprgirl it seems like some of the simptoms I have in my hip may be the psoas syndrome. Ive been having it massaged (youtube has some videos), works on my hip. My toctor also prescribe a Tens unit ( muscle stimulator) for my back, dont think its working, just gets my mind off the pain.
    Im starting to think I should see a neurologist?? My left leg tingles and feels like its asleep all day. My surgeon keeps saying saying he thinks my pain is soft tissue --muscles around the fusied area. But with the leg pain and tingling Im starting to wonder? Ive been taking the Gabapentin for 4 days now and its helped with some of the pain in my back and hips. I googled it and says some patients use it and it does wonders, but then the body gets use to it and doesnt have the same affect on the pain levels? Has anyone taken Gabapentin and what did it do for you?

    The stress of not knowing if you will be able to be productive is a load on my shoulders.
