I am new to spine health and hope I can learn something within the next 6 months. I started having cronic low back pain back in 1999. I have been to Doctor after Doctor with no help. All of the MRI's and exrays show nothing wrong other than a couple of minor buldging desks. The Doctors say they don't see anything wrong with me. I have severe pain in my lower back that radiates into my buttocks and down my left leg. My left foot tingles constantly and feels like I am walking on hot coals. But the Doctors say they can't see anything wrong with my back. My life has deteriorated to not being able to do anything. I can't stand very long and forget about walking. At night I'll sleep for about 1 1/2 to 2 hours then I have to get up and sit up for about 45 min. to an hour. Then I go back to bed and do the same thing over again and again until morning. I am exausted. On Monday I went to another Doctor because my pain has changed (got even worse) and he said the same as the other Doctors. So that night I discussed it with my husband and we decided that if I am still in this much pain in six months, I will commit suicide. He doesn't want me to do it, but he feels helpless about helping with the pain. He can't stand seeing me in this much pain. I've saved up enough pain pills. I go to a pain management dr who put a pain pump in and gives me Methadone. The pump cuts a little bit of the edge off the pain most of the time but the Methadone is like taking an aspirin. So I have saved them up just for this occasion. If anyone here has had this same problem and managed to get help for it please let me know. I really don't want to end my life, but as it is right now, I have no other choice other than remaining in this horrible pain. I am disparate.
