Hi Frogzie
Hi frogzie ~

I have had a total of 7 spine surgeries to date and I am fused both anterior and posterior from c3-7 and l3-s1. My husband and I just love my ns because he has given me my life back.

Ask what you would like to know and I will try to help.

Re: Low Back Pain In L4 to L5 to S1 Nerve Root
I am responding to this because I think I know what you may be talking about.... Have you seen a rheumotologist ????? Get on line and look up this doctor.... Drdryland.Com ..... He is the best there ever was and people come here from all over just to see him.... And if you do go on this site order the book the fibromialgia cure.. And he has a new book or dvd out called the fight or flight responce. Both good... I live in medford oregon... He is here. And he is the best. What I hear you saying is the amount of pain you feel and how you cant get out of bed... Listen what I may think it is / is what is called fibromialgia. Its hard to diagnose and alot of dr's will tell you it doesnt exsist.. Cause they dont know how to treat it... Well get this book and I am telling you it will make a difference.... I have it and so does this Dr. And it stopped me for a while too. It feels like you have the flu. And you ache in certain areas of your body... Like a siatic nerve pain... Hopefully I have helped... I dont know if this is it but maybe it is... Just try it.... It cant hurt...

I've had a few terrible bouts of back pain. My doctor had suggested physical therapy, which worked but only for a short time. My doctor told me to exhaust my non surgicla options and told me to check out a website called abcspine.com. I found an acupuncturist in my area, and did 18 sessions. I haven't had pain since!!

I would suggest you to have procedures of Zalmanov bath. I have my personal experience and it helps tremendously.
