    Long term back pain

    I am 25 years old and have experienced back pain for over 10 years. It began suddenly when I was a preteen and never went away. I saw a few doctors when it first started and again a few years ago in college. Nothing outside of a slight curvature came up on X-rays. I had chiropractic adjustments and physical therapy for years to no avail. The pain is primarily in my lower back and hip joints but my middle back is affected as well. It is worst when sitting and especially laying for long periods of time. When I sit for long periods of time, like a plane ride, my lower back goes numb. When I lay for a long period my middle and lower back ache horribly. It is relieved during exercise but worse shortly after.

    I am just looking for an answer as to what might have caused this pain and what I can do to relieve it. Physical therapy and chiropractic care haven't helped at all and I'm not willing to explore those options again.

    RE: Long term back pain


    Have you seen a neurologist or othapedist? Have you had an MRI or CT scan? Doing these things should get you an accurate diagnosis and effective treatment plan.

    I pray you find answers and relief soon.
