Very bad back pain need advice

Hi my name is Ellen

I have suffered with back pain for 2 years finally after telling Drs none of their creams and tablets work they gave me facit injections the pain went by half but after 6weeks it was back I'm at the hospital tomorrow to see him again but how do you make them listen I take 6 oxycodone a day and they have no effect plus paracetamol and codeine I can't sleep because the pain keeps me awake any ideas please

Without wishing to sound flippant, if Oxy isn't hitting the spot, it's sounding like you're entering 'pain management' techniques territory now!

You've probably already tried massage, yoga, pilates, swimming/hydro, acupuncture, TENS??

The next step may well be meditation, breathing techniques, psychologist input plus any other therapies offered by your local NHS Trust.

It's a really tough truth to hear that they can't offer anymore pills & potions but it's a possibility that you might have to prepare yourself for....

Hope you find an alternative therapy that works for you.
