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.

I hereby requesting your vote to win 'People's Health Blogger Award'. Please see all my posts related to cancer in my blog. Thank you in advance for your help.
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.
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"
My step mom is stage 2. She is doing pretty dang good. You do really well with your blog. Good for you for mantaining life even though it's not an easy one. God bless you!!
