back pain

Hi, not even sure where to start, had back pain,pain down left leg burning tingling and serious spasms in the bottom of my back for over 25 years which has had a huge effect on my life the pain is so bad sometimes i struggle to even walk. Six weeks ago it's started on right hand side and unbearable. Iam on tramadol, paracetamol, and diazepam, and from a last wensday gabapentin. Saw DR yesterday who sent me straight to A&E had exrays and MRI after 10 hours of been pulled about which put my back into spasm on both sidesi was in agony and could hardly walk , a nurse came and told me results of scan were clear u can go home and left . My husband turned up to get me I burst into tears (feeling stupid but couldn't stop it ) he got the consultant to come and speak to us who just didn't understand of cause I was over the moon results were clear, but at the same time built my hope up that I would finally get some answers and a way out of the pain. He suggested return to DR and get refered to a pain clinic ? . Today sat at home in agony, my back pain has caused weight gain depression anxiety over the years , I do help myself as much as I can and have done for a long time, but now having it on both sides iam losing the will to live and don't know where to turn anymore. I've not worked for 4 years I have no income at all, don't claim anything and in great debt . Sick of been treated like crap iam desperate to work as the Bordem is unbearable but these spasms are just to much to take . Sorry to moan but iam desperate as I also care for my husband who has rumathoid arthritis, physically iam not managing.

  • hello datsoon1 here,i have found the doctors are no help,please dont feel so down,you can carry on even when the pain is bad ,the doctors have no idea how painfull it can be,when i get through one episode,i think to my self, hey, i that didnt get me,and i have a cup of tea,and walk around my garden and think ,,one more battle to me,i am not religous so i talk to the plants and my dog and i dont dwell on the pain i have just gone through,dont think when it is going to strike next ,well thats what i try and do, keep going
