I would like to know if any of my Fibro Friends has a chronic lower back problem.
When I have been on my feet for a small amount of time, I feel like my top half of my body is so heavy that I get a crushing feeling at the bottom of my spin. Go to sit down and the pain is so great it takes your breath away. It is like a knife being thrust into that area. I have always thought it was because I have weakened my vertebrae, ruptured 2 discs 12 yrs ago. Long period of recovery, so I thought maybe I had damaged the nerves. Dr's say nothing to do with it, all part of the Fibro problem, but is it? I also was advised by my Doctors in Spain to wear a corset. I think this did more harm than good.
DOES ANYONE HAVE THIS TOO? HOW DO YOU DEAL WITH IT?
