:o Hi! I just found this forum and I am wondering if anyone has the same symptoms but also a suggestion of what this is, so that I may research it.
I started to go downhill when I hit 40. It is now almost 3 yrs later.
It started with minor back issues which I thought was age related. Then my back went out on me and I wound up in the ER. 1 yr ago, i was moving a 2000lb skid at work and something went nuts!
I am now in constant pain(lower back) and in my right buttock but the pain seems to go all over my back and buttocks, not affecting my legs with the same pain although my outer thighs are extremely sensitive to touch. Any sort of pressure makes me flinch and cry out.
I have been told that I have herniated disks, spinal stenosis and mylagia but with the different dx's comes different treatments and nothing has helped.
I am on a lot of pain meds but nothing is doing the right job. I can't sleep, I don't eat a lot of the time and i cannot walk, sit, stand or anything for any length of time.
I am just looking for suggestions to match my symptoms to something that I can research to try to help myself. Please feel free to respond, no pressure, just some pointers that may be of some use to figure this out would be great!
Thanks to all who read this!:)
