soar back all over

I dont know why but my back seems to be achy all over my spine. I have a annular tear on the L5/L4 but my mid back feels pain and slowly moving up. anyone know if it will go away or if i have some kind of disease? seems to me that it is not muscle pain. I told my friend that im going to die in like 5 years. Kind of a joke but who really knows anyway

I don't think that pain in your back will kill you although sometimes you wish that it would. Stress and depression tends to contribute to pain.

Re: soar back all over

If I were to hazard a guess, having the same kind of radiating pain from an L5-L4 disk herniation and tear, I'd call it muscle spasms. A good drug for that is Valium, which also acts as a mild tranquilizer and will reduce the stress you are feeling.

Unfortunately, Valium is very addictive and getting off it can take a long long time. There are other drugs out there that also might help. Soma, Flexeril, Zanaflex, Skelaxin etc... but none of them ever really helped me.

Talk to your doctor about this and good luck!

Re: soar back all over

I too get this, I am nearly 6 months post op from m/d of L5 disc area. I have been up and down through my recovery period like a yo -yo.

My latest downer came with similar symptoms you describe, aching all over my back especially mid to upper section.

I tireid rest, valium, anti- inflammatories etc but no lasting effect.

Went back to my physio, who reckons my back muscles are weak and overuse after op has triggered spasms.
He has given me various back stretches to stretch out the spasms, which do help I think, but as of yet has not eliminated the problem.
