I have been dealing with lumago ever since I had my son three years ago. At first it just started off as the "weak" spot where I had my epidural, but now it has progressed to weakness and trembling in the legs.
I had my son in 2005 and then I fell down the stairs (13 stairs total) in 2006. Recently, I have become so frustrated and tired of being pain that I decided to find a doctor to work with me on my pain.
Needless to say I fired one doctor already and now working with another doctor and an othropedic doctor.
I have had the following tests: xray, ct and mri without contrast on spine.
All tests present normal
Symptoms include: numbness, weakness and slight burning sensation in the legs -- I live on the third floor in my apartment complex and my legs shake as I walk down and up the stairs making this a very complex task (not to mention scary).
The pain in my lower back feels like its at the base, it feels as though there is a grinding and then radiating pain. Sometimes it gets really bad and I can't sit or lie down. It feels like a pinching at times with a shooting pain. Pain medicines only dull my senses, not particulary the pain. It's just a constant. I imagine when I work more or lift my son it causes inflammation around "whatever" it is and makes it worse -- I have no clue.
I have read some of the post and trust me when I say I feel your "pain". It just feels like I can't find someone who takes this pain seriously. I have had a doctor tell me it was a "TIRED" back and another one say (even after reviewing an xray) to say it was kidney stone only to have a CT and then say I didn't. It's just stressful.
So, now we'll see how it goes!! Look forward to to hearing from y'all.
