Back pain
« on: May 26, 2008, 04:49:03 PM »
Certainly hope you can help with my back pain. I have tried pain killers for the last twenty years and although some have worked previously, nothing seems to work anymore. I have been diagnosised with Socliosis and Anterolisthesis, the latter I have known about for twenty years. I am currently taking Oxycontin @20mg, I have tried Panadeine Forte and Endone. I have been in constant pain for the past 2weeks which is affecting my work performance. I find it difficult to walk, stand-up straight, sit down for long periods and all I can do is lay in bed. I am finding hard to eat or even cook a meal. I live alone, although my children do visit regularily. I do not excercise becasue I do not want to aggravate the pain.The Dr beleives I need surgery, however when I first visisted the Dr about 20yrs ago they said that there "was a 90% chance of ending up in a wheelchair". I can't take that chance..I'm hurtin real bad today, I spent the past 3-4days lying in bed cryin..Please help me..The last resort is suicide!!

Sorry to hear what you are going through George. It is made that much more frustrating when you see therapists with all the certificates on the wall but they can't take your pain away, I do understand how depressing that must get.
The thing is I am sure you could be feeling a lot better if you had the right sort of treatment so  you really need to investigate the therapists around your area and try to find out someone who does deep massage work and has many years experience. Try ringing the local sports clubs and asking who they could recommend, ask your friends and anyone else you know who might have experience in the sports area. I am assuming you are not near an SLM Therapist because if you are then give them a try. The list is here

I know it is easy for me to say try and stay positive and how difficult that can be but I am sure you know deep down you need to do that and be proactive in your recovery. Don't rely on finding someone that can wave a magic wand over you as it probably won't happen, you do have to put in the effort to get yourself out of this.

Good luck,

Just wanted to share the story of curing my back pain. Suffered from back ache for years.
I got an amazing result for my terrible back pain using a simple device Acupressure Mat, it hurt a lot to start with but then in minutes all pain has gone.
Same acupuncture only without skin penetration, which suites me more as I am absolutely scared of blood.
That was a miracle, hope this can help you as well.
