This is my first post for help although I have commented on a few recent posts. I was wondering if some of you lovely people that I read posts from everyday can help? I have had back, knee, foot and other health problems for about 16 years now but it is only since I had a second decompression surgery in Sept 2015 that I have not been able to manage my pain levels. I have been off work ever since my surgery and because of lack of mobility and such horrendous pain from my back every day, all day, I have now taken early retirement because of ill health at only 54. I have been given a number of different medications over the past year but they all have had awful side effects and don't relieve the pain anyway so have had to come off all of them.
I am trying to treat my pain naturally and feel so much more like me (most of the time 😃) but I am so so tired/exhausted/lacking energy and now looking at different vitamin and minerals that if deficient can cause this or elevate pain levels or irritate nerves in my lumbar and theracic area.
I get dreadful electric shocks in my lower back, have a real 'heavy' feeling in my pelvis/sacroilliac/hip area all the time which also locks or ceases up so quickly and can't stand, sit up or lay down for many minutes because of this. My legs jump about in the evenings while sitting with my feet up, my feet vibrate all the time and my back is so sensitive the muscles spasm at any little movement or touch.
I asked my GP if I could have B12 and magnesium blood tests and have just got my results, he says they are fine. I really don't know much about what they mean other than I can see they are all within the required levels of 'normal'? If anyone can offer some help I would really appreciate it. Hope you are not in too much pain today and all looking forward to the weekend, I have a good friend coming over for the day tomorrow 😃😃 Thank you guys x
