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.

I am having lower back pain like in the lower part of my buttock.  Hurts to stand up and walk and now walking almost bent over.  Starting having cramps and don't really feel good.  I was told by a nurse that it could be a pelvic infection.

I have a question for people who write for Wellsphere. Shouldn't this current "contest" about the Best Health bloggers be voted on by the people who we help?

 "If you vote for me, I'll vote for you". Is that what this contest is about? A popularity contest?

People who have come to Wellsphere to seek help and advice are the true test of a person's ability. Not how popular they are.

Hi Trudy

Before you do anything drastic, would you consider lifting the head of your bed 15 cm's or 6 inches higher than the foot end and sleeping this way for no less than 4 weeks to see what happens with regards to your neuropathic pain?

This is called "inclined bed therapy" search this or use my name "andrew k fletcher"
