Avatar f tn I have osteoarthritis in my back and hips. The physiotherapist has given me exercises to help with the pain. Best thing is to keep active, if you can. Hopefully the ortho will help, and a rheumatologist, like I have seen, will help you cope with the arthritis.
Avatar m tn This is also my excruciating story...so much pain in the tailbone and hip and lower back area. Standing for no more than 10 to 15 minutes. A trip to walmart is torture.

1378884 tn?1315509445 It can be injected directly into a joint to ease pain and swelling, given in an intramuscular injection or taken orally to quiet an overall RA flare-up, inhaled to help asthma and COPD patients breathe better, and more. My mom takes injections in her lower back to temporarily ease pain. My guess is you have a low back injury that is irritating the sciatic nerve, which travels down the back of your hip and down your leg.
Avatar f tn I have been to see a neurosurgeon yesterday as my lower back pain is torture. I cannot stand or walk for more than 10mins. The surgeon has recommended burning the nerves associated with the last 2 discs. Is any other option. I have already had injections L4/5 with no effect. I have osteoarthritis.

Avatar n tn I have had lower back pain for around 10 years. At least once a year I have what I call an episode, which simply means the back pain, worsens. The strange thing is when it does get worse the pain always radiates up my back not down. In 10 years I have had 2 MRIs on my lower back and they always find nothing. I am a very active person stretching everyday (because of my lower back) and using an elliptical machine for 30min/ 3 times a week for 6 yrs around 480 calories each time.
432312 tn?1265648574 I am over weight as my back pain sometimes causes me to not want to move at all. Ok here is my question. I think I have arthritis of some sort. I have been to many doctors. Sometimes they tell me that it must be a symptom of my MS. My MS doctor says that it could be but that since he isn't a back doctor he doesn't know. Mostly my lower back is affected. a dull ache that doesn't go away. Standing makes it much worse.
Avatar n tn I was in a car wreck 4 yrs old (rearened) i have have had lower back pain ever since. along with the pain i get a burning feeling on the right side of my lower back. my dr has me on vicodin and trazadone which helps me sleeps byt the pain ubearable most days. i can't sit for ver long stand for very long, as for playing with my kids forget it. the dr says that i have arthritis in my lower back. so it all the pain and the buring normal for arthritis? should i get a second opinion?
Avatar f tn I have severe back pain that prevents me even walking a mile, sometimes my upper swells while I sit at work but my lower feels like a block of pain when I walk its easy to know where it hurts because it'll be red and hot. Anyone else experience this.
941625 tn?1263585382 I did six rounds of chemo and 33 radiation treatments. I have had chronic and horrible lower back pain ever since. I have been seeing a rheumatologist for this, and he found some arthritis and fused vertebraes. He says he's not sure why my back hurts though all the time and just keeps me on a low dose of percocet. The problem is it isn't managing my pain and I can't stand this. Does anyone else have chronic pain in this area following treatment? If so, what are your docs and you doing to treat?
Avatar n tn With a serious accident, osteoporosis or other causes of weakened vertebral bones, vertebral fractures in the lumbar spine may also occur. Chronic lower back pain usually has a more insidious onset, occurring over a long period of time. Physical causes may include osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, degeneration of the discs between the vertebrae, or a spinal disc herniation, a vertebral fracture I hope this helps. Take care and keep us posted.
Avatar m tn For example, had you have known that the heavy wallet you kept for the past 30 years in your right rear pocket couple with driving an automobile with the seat all the way back, plus adding in an extra 20 pounds around the waste is the real problem not the pain in your back. The wallet causing you to sit off center and the driving with your legs straight out forces you to pull on your lower back instead of pulling the seat closer using more of your knees than back might show you some relief.
214864 tn?1229718839 i am 25 years old and i have several cysts on my lower back, the hurt when i push on them and cause a nerve like pain shooting pain, it is causing me lower back pain, what can i do to fix this problem.
Avatar m tn Spinal stenosis is narrowing of the spinal canal which can encroach upon the nearby nerve roots, causing pain. Opioid pain medications can significantly help the low back pain but not so much the leg pain. I am on the Fentanyl patch along with oxycodone IR for breakthrough pain and I still deal with significant nerve pain that shoots down my legs. Gabapentin (generic for Neurontin) helps way more than the opioid medications do for this type of pain. Have you tried Neurontin or Lyrica?
Avatar n tn I am a active 24 year old and have been expierencing aching hips sometimes both at once,sometimes just one and the pain hurts in my lower back and hip,and allso radiated down the back of my thigh and sometimes into my knee when it happens. The hip pain is worse in teh eveing,if i am sitting too long,or too active that dayallso i notice i have the pain when it rains or is cold outside.The pain allso wakes me up at night and interferes with my sleep.
Avatar f tn On a plane, you will have to get up at intervals and move around. Bringing knees to chest helps relieve pain in lower back and hips. Keep feet moving. Safe journey. Let us know how you got on.
Avatar f tn I have tried wheat bags in the past, is this the same as the arthritis pad? I have pain going down the backs of the legs, lower back pain, upper back stiffness and sometimes pain in the thighs and hips, depending on the day. I don't think my doctor realizes the pain I'm in as all he will give me is Tramal 50mg. I am waiting on a neural blockade bilaterally and haven't worked in 2 months. Are you working? Im hoping to get a job a few days a week where I can sit and move around!!
Avatar n tn Mostly the neck and lower back are where the average person gets it. It's basically wear and tear on your body. Once they've worn alot in one spot, they start growing a "Burr". Osteoporosis can be just from your age, or can also be from medications you're taking, or from an imbalance of the amount of Calcium and magnesium (or is it manganese???) you get. Or the Lupus could be causing an imbalance or inability to absorb calcium.
