Re: Back Pain!!!
Hi Shelley, I saw where you asked me what my back pains were like, and figured this was a more appropriate place to answer your question.
Mine arent lower back- mine are in my shoulder blade area. I know that I have 3 buldging discs in my spine in the C spine area...however, every ortho person I have seen insists that it is NOT what is causing my pain and its MS related...im starting to doubt it. Ive seen some of the best spine docs, who all want to do surgery on me (not happening) so now im seeing another pain specialist to have my MRIs looked at and get another opinion. By the way, Im now going on Tuesday- instead of the 10th- they had an earlier opening..
But my pain is blinding white hot pain which seems to start as soon as Im up for 3 hours and lasts well until Ive tried to lay down and sleep. ITs a burning, searing pain, which Im convinced is from the discs...we'll see. I do not want surgery and in fact will refuse to have it. But I have had 4 months of intense PT, and it did absolutely nothing. Neither did accupuncture- so maybe it is MS related...will keep you posted.
