hello all, new to the group

hello, im new to the group I want to introduce myself, im 30 years old with small four children. I fell and broke my tail bone right after having my 4th child. every since I had back pain. its gotten to the point where im in tears. I have been complaning about it for months with no one listening. finally my pc sent to to physical therapy and pain management. I have completed 7 weeks of physical therapy with no results. I have been to 2 pain management appointments who actuially finally got me an mri and suggested lumbar joint injections. im just waiting on my insurance to approve the injections. what am I supposed to do until then? the pain in my lower back is horrible. its a constant no matter what stabbing pain. from my mri I have 3 herniated disc and another degenerating and even a tiny cyst on a bone. yesterday I saw my family care dr who gave my pain patches trhat once again my insurance doesn't want to pay for so now im waiting for the approval in horrible pain. what to do?

    Hi Ashleybueso,

    Ouch! So sorry you have such pain...and while taking care of four kids!  :#

    I'd be calling my insurance company. 

    Do have anything for pain in the meantime? 

    Welcome :)
