ive had a back prb for 5yrs as time gone by the last year has been really hard as painkillers what the doc gives me dosnt work, was sent to pain releif clininc and so a doctor and he says its the facet joints is what playing up and cause pain down my legs, left side have an synovial cyst and the other side plays up and hurt aswell, been sent to see a specialist physio, and i know its not going to work as ive been doing physio and accupunture nearly all year. and it makes it worse but hey do they listen to what you say! think the back excercises has worked alittle as its just my hips that hurt if i do to much and i know my limits which is depressing, but now im getting to learn to cope with it abit now im starting to find out whats wrong, the only thing is ive been sent back to work they took me of sick while im still under investigation, i have no choice as im a single mum with three children have to put food on the table, dont get me wrong i want to go back to work but not the way iam at this moment, just hope they give me some injection to help me to cope with the pain while im working. the doctor did say they cant give injections were i get the pain, has anyone suffered with this? if so im be grateful for any information you can give me, Alot of people here in the UK fiddle benefits saying they are ill and have a disability when they havnt, and the govenment is cracking down on it, and people like me are the ones who are suffering. im trying to set up my home business so i can work from home, and when i need to rest i can when i want too.
