    severe back pain

    Does anyone have low back pain to the point of not being able to walk without sitting down every couple of minutes? I also feel like my back and my stomach is drawn together when I try to walk. It is so painful. I take Gabapentin, and 75 mg Fentanyl pain patches every 48 hours. As well as Ibuprofen and Tylenol. Even with all this, I stay in pain. The only time I am not in pain is when sitting or sleeping. I sleep well with Trazadone. It is a lifesaver. Does anyone else have this problem? It would be good to know I am not alone in this. It is scary sometimes when I let my mind run away with me. I am 72 but I can not imagine living the rest of my life like this.

    Re: severe back pain

    what's causing the pain? Have you talked with a neurosurgeon?
