Once a year I am in great pain with my back as is happening now. I was sent to physio a few years ago and because of the time frame my back pain had cleared by the time of my appointment. So I've had a bad back for about a month now and I went to see my GP who gave me an anti inflammatory and diazepam to stop spasms. I have a good relationship with my GP but there has been no investigation at all as to what could be the cause. I am worried because at times I can barely walk I've not been able to work for a month so this is causing me great concern. I explained this to my GP but he's not in the same pain as I am so is not overly concerned. All anybody has done is look at my back with their naked eye. I'd really like someone to look at my back and give me some answers. This pain comes on seemingly of its own accord at random times. Can somebody guide me please. As I said before I have a good relationship with my GP and don't want to complain about him but my back really hurts and doesn't seem to be improving he said he suspects its arthritis but don't I deserve more than "suspects".
