Hi everyone, hoping I can get some advice . I have suffered a long time with lower back pain which has got worse over the years. I'm 50 years old. I've has physio and they discovered I had hypo mobility of my shoulders. I have neck /back pain when I sleep and have been experiencing pain down left leg and muscle pain in calves, tingling down arms painful elbows. I have had blood test for iron levels recently and for arthritis but that one was a good few years ago. I haven't really had any one tell me why I have these pains physio say I'm it's just how I am! I was given a nerve blocking drug gabapentin but I didn't find it that helpful and don't want to rely on drugs before I really have to, I just take strong painkillers at bed time and if I really need to through the day. I don't know if I should ask to be referred somewhere to get more help or is this it? Sorry for going on a bit but Im getting really worried as I'm getting more aches and pains and future worries me. Grateful for any advice.
