Hello. I have dealt with low back pain since I was 3 years old. I am now 27 years old. I have been to several specialists over the years, had MRI's, CT's, Bone Scan's, etc. I have been cleared of cancers including leukemia. I have had physical therapy as a child, and two years ago. I have also had some type of steroid injection when I was 12. It temporarily stopped the pain but only for about six months. I remember many sleepless, painful nights crying with my Mom because of the pain. The pain seems to be helped and somewhat relieved with a heating pad. Yet, the heat outside causes more pain. When I was 21 years old, and pregnant with my son I was formally diagnosed with sacroillitis. I was told that it would either fix the problem, or make it or worse by being pregnant. Well it did neither. The pain is constant 24/7 but some days are worst than others. Such as the past two days I have been in a lot of pain. I honestly am not a complainer. I am just desperate right now. On sunday night, the pain was unbearable. So I took a pain pill that I had from a gallbladder surgery two years ago. Well two years ago I was fifty pounds heavier. Needless to stay, I am sure it was the wrong dosage for me on my weight now so my legs became numb, I was sweating, very hot even though the A/C was on 60, nauseated and very, very dizzy. Yes that was very dumb, and it is never happening again. I have been told that when I lost weight the pain would lessen. Well I did lose about fifty lbs two years ago, and the pain became worse. I have a lot of experience with this pain, but I could use ANY type of advice anyone needs. I will not go through physical therapy or surgery. I do have an appointment with orthopedic surgeon on June 6....he specializes in backs. What I am in need for from you...is does anyone have any advice on pain management? I am desperate...the pain is becoming unbearable. Please, please help!!!
