Pain in Vertebral Osteoarthitis
2 years ago I could walk upright. Then I began to suffer pain in my back especially the thorasic and lumbar regions. Over the last 2 years I have developed a forward stoop which again causes extra pain. My GP said it was osteoarthritis and an X-ray confirmed that. I have been on morphine both liquid and slow release tablets for over 18 months. Also I take 8 Tramadol tablet a day. The pain is there evryday and my GP says there is nothing more he can do All this is aggrevated by my diabetic neuropathy which causes pains at times very severe in my abdomen. There again the drugs help. What could I do to improve my situation? It looks like the medical world has written me off..
