Hi, I suffer severe pain in the lower back and hips. I have arthritis in my hips but cannot be put forward for a hip operation due to my health issues. My pain is so bad that it travels down the side of my legs and feels like someone has jammed a bed of nails into my lower back and legs. My legs also become very weak and shaking making it difficult to walk. No one seems to want to help me. I have been dismissed with "lower back angina" and literally told to go away and shut up. This was by a so called professional consultant in orthopaedics. The health issues they are afraid of are 2 strokes 8 years ago and 3 heart attacks 6 months ago. I am left in severe pain and refuse to be doped by heavy pain killers. I don't know what to do now. I have 4 poodles and would love to walk them, but after only a short walk my legs give way and the pain my lower back is very bad.
Any suggests please, and does anyone else have this disability?
