Hi gang and happy new year!
I'm after a few answers for some questions I have relating to the above diagnosis from anyone unluckily enough to have had the same. I am trying to work out if the pain I am experiencing is as a result of this or something else. .
1) Most people who have this seem to have had gradual onset pain. Mine arrived one day like a light switch and has stayed ever since albeit with very slow improvement over the last 4 months. Did anyone else have it suddenly arrive?
2) Whilst I do get the odd twinge in the L5 area, most of my pain and stiff feeling comes from around T10 area which has been MRIed as normal. Again do many of you find that the pain is anywhere but the area diagnosed?
3) Does the level of pain remain constant through the day? Mine can go from feeling horrible to reasonable within 20 minutes, seemingly for no reason at all.
4) Finally, I get some of my pain from sitting but much more from laying on my back, something that I've seen a lot of people say eases it. Anyone else find laying on it to be worse?
Thanks to all that reply!
