I've had chronic low back pain on the right side for two years, now.
I've seen 8 doctors (osteopaths, orthopedic surgeon, physiatrist, rheumatologist, musculoskeletal radiologist, etc.), multiple physical therapists, had two MRI's, Xrays, physical examinations, etc.
My doctors can't agree completely, but it's looking like a multi-faceted issue, but the main problem is that I don't heal. I've tried prolotherapy, which has so far only increased my symptoms (not changed them).
I'm starting to lose any hope as I'm running out of treatment options. I've seen a rheumatologists and had two rounds of blood work that all came back negative, except for being positive for HLA-B27, but I got a hip xray, and everything was normal.
Has anyone else experience a lack of a clear diagnosis and treatment? I just don't even know what I'm really suffering from and therefore have no idea how to treat it. PT has either made me stay the same or get worse for the most part.
Any insight would be much appreciated.
