I have had agonising back pain for over 2 years and unable to walk sit or stand for longer than 5 mins and am very uncomfortable when laid but that's the best position I rarely sleep well.
I had a bulge at l4/l5 that's been removed and 5 mri's 8-9 a and e emergency admissions as well as countless non emergency admissions.
Before they removed the bulge I had 2 epidurals to try help with pain they never worked had tens machine that did nothing also acupuncture that never worked. The pain is so intense it's in my back my hips my legs down to my feet my legs are so weak from my back my muscles are still there and sometimes I walk and feel they have power other days it's gone. I am 27 and have four children I dream of getting back to work I am deeply depressed as I feel it's hopeless they say there's nothing they can do but pain relief and pain management.
My live has been ruined by this my children are 10 months 3, 7, and 8 and I can't spend more than five minutes stood up I have a wheelchair but it's not enough when I know sometimes I have leg power but still the pain is there the drugs rarely make my life comfortable but they say I am on a very high dose equivalent to 725mg morphine.
It's not good I want more surgery but they say they can't perform surgery when they have fixed the disc and it had no benefit please someone must know something I can't carry on this way my children my life my partner are all affected by this everyday my life is a sofa and I am 27. Would love to walk my children to the park with out pain to enjoy my children again I was so active strong 6ft healthy weight athletic figure then out of nowhere over night it started as back ache and now it's a monster bigger than me. I have put weight on and can't shift it as I can't exercise I struggle with passing urine again as it was before When nerves were slightly compressed before they Un compressed. How can I get help
