I have never had any problems with my back until several weeks ago. I was just trying to get out of bed and the pain in my lower back was so bad I couldn't move. I tried taking Advil and resting on an ice pack but nothing worked. This went on for days and the pain was so severe, it brought me to tears. The doctor prescribed Lortab and an anti-inflammatory med. When this didn't help, he prescribed Percocet. Nothing has relieved the pain. I'm experiencing sharp consistent pain in my buttocks down the back of my thighs to my knees and my left foot is numb. The pain seems to be more on the left side. I am now taking Mobix. I can at least walk now but the pain is constant. I am 50 years old and about 30 lbs. overweight. I don't know if my weight could be causing this but it is almost unbearable. I found this website and thought I would see if anyone else has or is experiencing the same thing? I would greatly appreciate any suggestions on what I can do to get some relief.
