Hello everyone.ok am in a very bad way at the minute with pain in my mid and lower back going down both legs affecting my knees and ankles. It started after I had my appendix out last year. Doctor kept saying it would get better but it didn't. I was prescribed solpadol which worked for my pain Untill it stoped working 3 months ago. I have to use two crutches when out and about. I'm in agonising pain all day everyday. I'm lucky if I can get 4 hours a night. It's so bad that even doing a few dishes makes me want to cry. In the past year I have been given vimovo,lyrica,neurontin,etoflam gel,lidocaine patches,solpadol,4 diefene injections,moral anti depressants,amitriptyline,another anti depressants I can't remember the name of,another anti inflammatory I can't remember the name of, ibuprofen 600mg, diazepam. I have tried heating pads , cold packs,tiger balm,tiger ointment,horsebalm,epsom salts,paracetamol,nurofen. I have been attending physio and a sport injury therapist but they can't help me anymore. This year I lost my rented home cause I couldn't work due to pain and had to move back with my folks. I have no job,no money. I was in college but had to drop out because my course was to demanding physically. iv lost a lot this year and I'm dealing with all this pain and I'm getting depressed again because of pain and stress due to family troubles. I'm applying for disability and supplementary while waiting for a verdict. Iv had blood work done an mri and xray all clean. Had an ENDOSCOPY as well cause of bad stomach pain since appendix got taken out. Still waiting for those results. Nothing is helping my pain and no doctor will give me anything that would work because they are afraid of addiction. All I keep getting is stuff that has been tried and failed. I feel like I'm slowly going crazy. Can barely walk now. Even taking a bath or changing sheets kills my back. Can't do anything anymore. IM ONLY 22 YEARS OLD BUT FEEL 70. please tell me I'm not alone as no one around me can understand. If been called lazy and been accused of faking it for attention. This is not a life anyone should endure. I have nights that I cry myself to sleep or I rock in a ball cause the pain pushes me to the edge.
