since april 2006 (its presently october 31st) i have been experiencing the most severe pain in my lower back.
it will start randomly whether i am standing, sitting exercising etc.

iv been to the doctor many times, been checked for ovarian cysts, had blood and urine tests done, had my back felt by a doctor and they cant find anything wrong.
i cant live like this anymore.
i want to kill myself.

  • You need to persist with your doctor. If you don't then he will think that you have recovered. There are lots of reasons why you could feel such pain. It might be your back, but it could originate from almost anything. If the blood tests are showing nothing obvious then that is a good sign. But if you are still feeling pain then you must persist and get to the bottom of it. Don't give up!!!!

  • You need to get your mum or dad to get a 2nd opinion, see the same or another doctor, have an xray to begin with and then continue from there, back pain can be from many many things, it could be period pain referring to your lower back or a misaligned verterbrae......do you play any sport, and if so could this activity contribute, are you sitting alot? assuming your in school the answer should be yes which could also make your back feel worse, see if your parents can take you to a physiotherapist or osteopath. dont give up....back pain is the worst.....but when someone finds the problem its a huge relief....hang in there

CRIKEY for somebody contemplating suicide this isn't much info to go on. what is your diet and family history--any diabetes or arthritis? you could have gallstones, wee ones that only show up as sludge and are passed by the time you get scanned; or kidney stones. google 'kidney stone diet' and avoid carbonated drinks, coffee, and cola. consider getting a lidocaine patch and email me if you want at nordskoven at aol dot com put wrongdiagnosis in the subject line. will pray for you.
