Hi all I am a 25 year old Male, I recently found and joined this site just wondered if anyone has the same problems as would be nice to be able to talk to someone who knows other than a doctor. I have had chronic back pain since July 2014 seen Physios and havent really helped i recently had a MRI scan and found I had a Slipped Disc causing Sciatica and also wear and tear on my back the same as a 50 year olds. I am currently waiting to see a specialist on the 14th January. I have had alot of problems getting effective pain relief i started with diffent strengths of Codiene which did nothing then went onto 50mg Tramadol which didnt do alot either but helped abit and now im on Meptid (Meptazinol) and find this not very good either and it brings me out in a rash and gives me a bad headache. I recently went back to the doctors to get something else and the doctor gave me something very weak that helps nerve pain and it is useless. Im going back to doctors tomorrow but i am getting so sick of trying to find something to work pain is getting me down and im struggling more and more. I have lots of tattoos so I am not normaly bothered about pain but this I am really strugling with. Just want something to work and aid me. Thanks for reading guys.
