I'm quite new to this and I'm seeking some advice.
I'm 26 years old and about 3 years ago I started to get a pain in my lower back, this then became a severe pain over time. Over the last three years the pain has spread all up my spine, in between my shoulders and in my neck. The pain has also spread down into my hip, knee and leg. The pain is so severe in my lower back, hip, neck and knee and is getting worse and worse. Has anyone had any similar experiences and any advice?
My doctors have prescribed me Tramadol (400mg daily) and I have been on them for about 2 years. They don't let me sleep when I take them, they keep me awake all night. Has anyone else have this effect?
Also, my GP has referred me to a specialist pain clinic and wondered if anyone had any experience with pain clinics and what Ii should expect?
Sorry for al the questions! I'm at a point of desperation.
Thanks in advance
