lower back pain
Hi....I have been suffering back and biomechanical problems for five months which originally surfaced as a variety of leg muscle injuries and it was not until s-4 months later that I had any back pain.
If you believe it to be biomechanics, I would suggest maybe a good osteopath as first port of call as they can rule in and out the biomechanics versus possible lower back issues. You will probably be pleasantly suprised by what they can do.
I have learnt by trial and error that trying to eliminate one thing at a time is the best route as if you go for all diagnosis and magic pills to start, then you will end up with nothing but confusion and prolonged injury.
Blimey...your tale of woe shares common ground with mine...I also have tried every treatment under the sun without joy including spinal injections et al. It is soul destroying and expensive. The complaint has cost me a very well paid job and my sanity so can understand your army frustration, you truly have my sympathy for what it is worth.
Ironically the most progress that I have made is by stopping all treatments, resting, reduced alcohol intake dramtically and walking 3 miles for exercise everyday. Dare I say it but I have have had symptom free days in recent weeks. In two weeks I have got further than all four and a bit months of physios, osteopath (although he was the best), doctors, bowen therapy, specialists etc...
I am also going to ask for blood tests as I have met a number of people who have had similar problems and only after having blood tests have they found the true answer.
