Back pain

Started by Greensburg on 05/23/2012 4:05pm

I have been diagnosed with 4 degenerative discs and one on the sciatic nerve. I have had several test and all they give me to take is Gabapentin 800 and Melaxican. The pain never stops it only ease it a little. There are times I can not sleep unless I am on a heating pad and sitting up. Sometimes I get a little releif by laying on my side. Only on the right side where the discs are bad. I have tried physical theraphy and they stated it only makes it worse. I have been out of work since 2009, I have aslo applied for disability but was denied. My case is now pending at the review board. If I could get some relief from pain I would love to return to work. I have always work at least two jobs since I was seventeen years old. I do not have any insurance, so I have to go to a charity hospital and clinics.
