What is wrong with me? That is the question I have been asking Doctor after Doctor for three years. Just recently my sister told me of a friend who saw a segment on a health show about lower back pain and epidurals. I had three epidurals in four years-childbirth pain management. I don't know if this is the true source of my chronic pain but I'm beginning to suspect nerve damage from the epidurals. The pain progressed after each pregnancy & delivery. I'm desperate to find more information on this topic. I have finally found a few good Docs., but there is relief only with pain pills, which are a contsant source of aggravation in themselves. I'm so tired of the suspicions and innuendos by nurses, pharmacists, and doctors when I ask for a refill on a perscription. I cannot take NSAIDs so I few options. I am open to suggetions out there (legal options only, please). If there is anyone with information remotely linked I would appreciate seeing it.
