    Lower Back Pain

    I am a 58-year-old female and all I did was bend over slightly to open a dresser drawer and suddenly I felt pain in my lower back. I bend all the time with no problem but today it just popped or ripped or something and now I feel pain mostly when I get up or stand, sitting doesn't seem to cause pain. I am going to alternate cold and hot packs as I read that somewhere, is that a good remedy?

    Back pain

    So, I’ve already been going to pain management for low back pain and neck pain(all in the spine)... but as of recently(last week), i slept on my back funny and now it hurts in my lower back on the right side and it’s hard for me to walk. It’s just to the right of my lower back right around the hip area if that makes sense. It hurts worse than the back pain i was already having. What do you guys think i did? Did i punch a nerve.. is it because I’ve gained a few pounds? Anyone else going through this....

    Chronic Pain

    I am looking for suggestions or info from anyone on pain. I am 57 yrs old and have degenerative disc disease, collapsed discs, scoliosis (recently developed), Rynards Syndrome, Thyroid issues, osteoporosis & osteoarthritis. I’ve had one back surgery & was just told that another surgery would probably not do much for my pain. I’ve been in 3 auto accidents, totaling all 3 vehicles each time. I had to be cut out of 2 of the vehicles with the jaws of life, fracturing my neck in one. None my fault....

    Life Devastation

    My life has been nearly completely destroyed due to the government bullying legitimate pain patients. I was cut to less than half of my meds in one month & completely off the next. I have RSD of the right arm and I have been taking medication for about 10 to 12 years. I’ve remained on the same dosage amount for that time because I am young and I knew that there would be a time when I may need a higher dosage. I have never had any dirty urine test or any issues with my doctor but when all of this....

    Pain management

    I'm looking for a good pain medicine doctor.
  • Back Pain - Where did you come from?

    I had exploratory knee surgery in November, nothing major was fixed, very minor, should have recovered in two days. Two days after the surgery I started having lower back pain. Went to the doctors, they say it has nothing to do with the surgery. I have been to the chiropractor, massage, primary care, pain management, physical therapy twice. Nothing is helping. It started in my lower back and now has my entire back hurting, including my shoulders and neck. The physical therapist said they couldn't....

    Curious about statistics used in professional mags, I had a reaction to similar claims on the Pain Doctor. I felt more welcome posting here.

    Seems a conflict of interest to state an overwhelming care for a patients pain and back it up with uninformative lists of studies. Sure the number of deaths of 'elicit' opioid prescriptions are claim made time and again, but pointing out the connection falls short of any real study as the reader is left to make their own conclusions. More to the crux would have been to show that deaths continue to be on the rise despite the remedial work in arrests and sanctions against companies started....

    INpatient Pain clinic

    Does anyone know of the existence of an INPATIENT pain facility? It seems like every hospital system has an OUTpatient pain clinic, but none have any inpatient. What I am looking for is a pain clinic that does not release you until they are able to find a pain management that works. I have severe chronic joint pain due to joint laxity. All my joints hurt, but no swelling. Everything hurts at a “9” all day, every day. No opioids EVER have helped. I have had a spinal cord stimulator, and several experimental....

    Chronic pain and CBD Oil

    Hi there! I have had issues with chronic back and leg pain for many years. Have had three back surgeries, need another one. At times, my pain is so bad, I can hardly function. It is debilitating and exhausting! A couple of months ago, I started experimenting with CBD Oil. I bought it at a very reputable health food shop, and only after talking at quite some length to somebody there, who seemed to really know her stuff! So, my question is, has anybody else out there tried it? Has it helped you? I....
  • 18 year old with worsening back pain

    So I’ve been a cart pusher for over a year and a half now. One weekend I was going really hard and while pushing a long line of carts, something in my lower back shifted or poped and it left me with no pain, but a tingling feeling. The next few days pain and disconfort arose and to this day I still experience the pain and discomfort. More so I’ve been noticing it when I sit in chairs or am standing for long periods of time. I goto the chiropractor weekly to get adjusted and even have been recommended....
