Can someone please shed some light for me? I've had back pain for 4 years now, stemming from the labor relief I choose during child birth (it was called "intra" something, I always forget how to pronounce it). It's the one time shot in the back kinda like the epideral, but they shot me 15 times. The same spot has been painful ever since. I have a hard time with almost anything I do, and my back hurts every day. There are days where my back will have shooting pains down into my hips. One day I was lucky enough because the pain was so bad that my back just became numb. What a heaven sent feeling for a change!! Driving is a big killer, just checking the blind spots. Ok, so I've been to physical therapy, where they tried electro shock therapy and I cried afterwards because it made it worse. I've been to the ortho, chiropractor, massage therapy (IT'S NOT MY MUSCLES!!), I've been to the pain management clinic where they shot anti-inflammatory steroids into my sore spot on my back and that didn't help. All I want to know is what is wrong. I have to clean the house, do laundry, all that other stuff. I can't afford a maid, and my two children are 4 and almost 3. I'm only 24 and too young to feel this old. MRI's and X-Ray's come out clean. So I don't understand why after 4 years no one will help me figure out what's wrong. Can God please send someone to read this so I can understand what's wrong with me. I understand this will be a problem for the rest of my life, I just want to know what's wrong.
