Re: I can't lay on back or stomach w/o back hurting????
Jodi, I would go back to the dr you saw or another and explain to them that you are continuing to have back pain after a full year. I would explain what you have tried to relieve it and that you have not found a solution and the pain continues to persist. You might consider comparing your pain to something tangible. It feels like I have labor pain right before one pushes or like my back is being slammed into a car door repeatedly or it feels like a dull tooth ache. This can help them to evaluate the amount of pain you are having.
Unfortunately not everything shows up on an xray and you need to have an MRI to see the detail of the spinal disc and nerve roots. An xray shows you the bone structure and not all back problems can be diagnosed by a simple xray.
Good luck and I pray that they find a simple solution to your pain that some physical therapy will resolve.
