I can hardly stand up and walk at mo. Have problem with L5/ si facet joints and it is really bad. Been taking co drydamol but not better. Few weeks ago I was on high dose steroids for cardio effusion and it was wonderful. .no back pain or any other. But finished the course. Pain really bad now so went to doc yesterday for. Help. Asked for prednisalone just to get me through my holiday but after discussing with colleagues they wont give them to me. Or diazepan for the spasms. But been given Lyrica which I have had before to good effect but made me very short tempered. I have biught a wheelchair but husband not too happy about it but seems only way I can manage to get around. Lyrica not working yet so may have to up dose from 50 mg. never booking a holiday again. So depressing. Sorry to vent but feeling useless.
