Re: what do i need to do

Welcome to the board.

I'm wondering, since you are on disability, if you have a diagnosis for your back problems? Have you consulted with a spine specialist? Any doctor other than an orthopedic spine surgeon or a neurosurgeon do not have the specialized education and training to notice the more nuanced spine problems than can remain unnoticed or undiagnosed.

What specifically are your pain symptoms in you back?

Do you also have something like fibromyalgia?

Re: what do i need to do

i dont really even know if i have a diganoses sometimes to tell u the truth i just get so tired of messing with all of this i was told by one dr that i had polyarthromyalga which i dont even understand what it is then they sent me to an arthritis dr which said i didnt have that or arthritis or fibromyalgia but how can they tell they only did a quick physical exam and nothing else so they family dr did a mri and said it was normal and gave me vicodin and sent me to pt that made the pain 1000 x worse i went for 2 days aweek for 6 weeks i switched drs and my dr is really caring and seems to be a good dr she did another mri and it came back normal

i have like a dull pain that is constint in my back its severe if i stay in any position for to long no matter if i lay sit stand it doesnt matter it always hurts sometimes feels like the musles long ways arcoss my lower back are being torn apart with someones finger nails hands sorry my spelling is not good

Hi heather, Are you taking avinza for hepatitis C then? I made a mistake that made me remain in umdiagnosed severe back pain for years because i didnt get a report of my MRI's & trusted what the dr said about them & finally went to a new neurosurgeon & was diagnosed. So because of this I have a copy of all my tests, what kind of MRI was it a lumbar?
