I am experiencing severe back pain due to possible spinal stenosis. I also have scoliosis. I am a 100% service connected disabled veteran from the Vietnam War. Thus my main health care is through the Veterans Administration Primary Health Care System.
I have had 4 Emergency Room admissions in the past two weeks. I have been given injections and pain medications which have not helped that much. A diagnosis was low back pain with radiculpathy. ( narrowing of the spine ).
I am not sleeping well. I cannot walk, stand, or sit without being in excruciating pain. Sometimes I am in tears. And I am not a whine baby. I don't complain unless the pain is extreme. This is affecting everything I do. I am physically and emotionally exhausted. Sometimes I have to scream.
I have several upcoming appointments but some are six weeks or more from now. I need help now.
