I have been battling low, dull back pain that is constant on both sides of my spine for about 4 months now. After ER visits and my general dr I am finally seeing a back specialist on Friday. The pain is constant but varies in intensity only relieved by pain pills or muscle relaxers. I've been diagnosed thus far with a back sprain (but for 4 months?) and a bladder infection which has since cleared but still have the pain. I'm not that old - WTH?! 

I've never injured my back before and don't recall doing anything to strain it. My parents say it is the heels I wear on a daily basis. I do not want to hear that! Please someone tell me it's not the heels! I spend a fortune on beautiful designer shoes. 

Just curious if anyone else has had this type of pain and what it was/the solution. I'm frankly tired of popping so many pills.

I hate to tell you, but it certainly could be the heels. If you have read the fashion thread, you would know I share your love for shoes, but I had to give up the high platforms or stilettos. The only thing I can wear without pain and get off the ground is a wedge.

You should at least give them up temporarily to see if they are the cause or not. I know it's sad, was always told I have nice legs and flats sure don't do anything to show them off. Ultimately feeling good is better than looking good.

Oh my goodness, it would be a major issue for me to give up my gorgeous and outrageously expensive designer shoes! I do wear wedges to work a lot and that helps and have tried to not wear 5" stilettos but maybe 3.5" on a work day.

I work for a large beauty company in Marketing so appearance and designer labels are like a prerequisite to work in my department. Competitive and shallow describes my work environment. 

We do seem to have lots of common interests 2earls, I knew you were a good one!

That definitely doesn't sound like an Easy Spirit environment.

GI broke my l3 last October (transverse) and it healed right up and never bothered me again.  Now that I have started doing yoga every morning, my back is bugging me daily.  Igh.  This is new.

Finally got my fucked up insurance all figured out and made it to the back specialist today. X-rays showed nothing wrong so then did a MRI. Dr suggested physical therapy after next appt with MRI results. Threw more pills at me - got 90 tramps, muscle relaxers. Ugh - really? He said he could not give me anything stronger than tramps. Feel like I need to take 3 of these things to put a dent in the pain. Would be ok if I had not just got scammed from a newly blacklisted vendor for the good stuff. Double fuck my life. Oh, and he agreed with my hubby and others who have said I need to take a break from the heels. One question? WTF is my good karma? Isn't that supposed to come back in spades? Between it being my second time to be scammed and I can't wear heels AND I got tramps again, plus all the pain I'm in - ugh. Just over it all. Sorry for the rant, I'm having a pity party at the moment.

i used to have backpain from my car accidents, i always used to think i had a kidney problem, but really it was a bad sciatic nerve on the lower right back that always freaked me out, and also i thought i had a problem with my liver but instead if was a mid tear in my spine that would be aggravated when humidity levels were high...

 

i used to think allot of my pain in the back was from organs, but it has to do with the lower lumbar and upper spine, and the  vertebrates also play a big role , especially on our lower backs, its like TRANSMISSION FLUID , keeps our spines alive but over time cartilage tends to weaken or go away causing the vertebrates to sink down , thts why u see older ppl  look smaller cause there lower back is degenerating :( 

 

so i try to stretch my lower back, and legs as much as possible ,take EFA's tablets, and good protein, eat a clean diet, exercise your back to make that area strong ? if that works if you can manage to do workouts , 

 

hope you feel better

 

also if  u have access to a sauna, sauna heat most definitely helps with that bone pain :/ i am 32 yrs old and been in 9 car accidents, more than a million wipe-outs on surfing and skating in the past 2decades, so my back and shins are torn up, yet thank goodness i still havent needed PK's

jst have anxiety ,go figure lol

Oh, I'm so sorry to hear that mrcoolguy! Sounds painful. From what I am reading, I need to strengthen my core ab muscles, stretch and not overdue it. Maybe lose the heels too but I believe it will be a rainy day in heel b4 that totally happens. 

Thank you for sharing your experiences with me, sounds like you have a lot of knowledge on this subject. I have been in quite a few car accidents myself, I'm a terrible driver! Maybe that has contributed to my back pain as well. 

We'll what the MRI results say and if physical therapy helps.
