Back Problems board


Hi
Thank you for the quick reply. Well my doctor said that x-rays don't show anything - he did blood tests which were all normal. I have had this pain for over six months now, no it does'nt go into my legs but into my buttocks and sometimes radiates out over my hips. Then I have this really deep pain mid-back if I try to get out of bed or off the chair. I try and support my back as much as possible at work with a lumbar roll and in the car. My doctor prescribed Ibuprofen and Aspirin which does'nt take the pain away. I can honestly say the pain is with me day and night. I have a back brace but that does'nt seem to help - honestly I just don't really know what to do. Maybe I should go back to the doctors and ask for an x-ray what do you think ?
Regards
Kay
