Hi everyone I am 51 years old and nearly five years ago my health changed dramatically when I developed a bladder condition that in turn has resulted in damaged nerves in my lower back. This nerve pain is vicious in nature and causes me to stay at home, doses up on strong painkillers. It is highly unpredictable and therefore hard to know often what triggers it. Treatment I have tried so far includes acupuncture, steroid injections and denervation. It would be reassuring to hear from others who may have experiences of similar pain as it can be a very isolating thing and causes me to feel very low at times.
