Hey i have had this horrible back pain for a year now. I have went to a chiro. Back in nov. Last year got worse so i stoped going. Now i have had therapy, hasn't helped. I take a muscle relaxer every night, but some nights it doesn't help like last night. I clean for a living and i know that is makes it worse but i think it is in my spine. So my doctor is having me go in for a mri next week, but he doesn;t think it is a disk or anyhting like that. I know its not muscular because i can feel it in my spine and the pills don't help all the time... Any suggestions.

If I were you, i'd stay off my back for a while. Spinal damage can be deadly. I'd also get a great doctor.

If your pain links to the spine and you're not properly taken care of, a roller coaster of unpredictability will give your mind something painful to dwell upon for the rest of your life. Be careful how you use your back. That's my advice.

Lower Back Pain-sciatica Nerve
I have just joined and been reading all the messages and was wondering if anyone knows what to do about a sciatica nerve problem? My mom has been suffering since june and the doctors have tried everything from chiropractic, acupunture, morphine, demorall, tylenol 3 with codeine, and some even stronger medicines. Also she has tried ice and heat therapy. Can anyone help? My mom is 66 and until then was more energetic before this than most 20 year olds.
Thanks
