Rather than take a "suggestion" by a nurse, I would talk to the doctor personally. Don't let it go on too long.
I can think of a million problems that could be causing your pain. Back pain is a common problem but the cause of the pain can be from many places.
I'm not a medical professional; just an educated patient like you. Please don't delay finding out what is causing the problem. Delay in treatment can lead to serious complications.
Starting Friday, Feb 5, I will be hosting a weekly radio show called "Living with RSD". I will be covering topics that pertain to Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD) but also many guests will be discussing the special issues we all face with any chronic illness. Please join us to listen or call in to talk to the guest and hosts.
