i am a slipped disc sufferer for the last 4-5 years. i have a slipped disc on my l3,l4,l5 + spinal cyst (posterior spine). i am a chronic back pain to foot sufferer. recently, i have found walking helps reduce my back pain by 90%! i was pain free for almost 2 months and was really happy about it until... i started taking sleeping pills (zolpidem) daily and my back pains came back in full force for the last 2-3 wks. I have had sleeping problems for a few months. I was just wondering if sleeping pills can cause serious back pains? I also have developed left eye aches! I am not sure if it's related to zolpidem but i am unwilling to see a doctor too soon due to money problems. So i stopped taking zolpidem last night and today my back pains were not as bad but its still there.
Anyone has the same problems as me after consuming zolpidem?
