Check out the company that makes the bed and buy one.
See orthopedic doctor, let them do an MRI.
See the "nerve" doctor, but not a neurologist or heaven forbid, a neurosurgeon. Surgeons are appropriate only in certain situations.
Find a spine specialist, trained in anesthesia, who may be able to help with those painful spondylitic joints. (Spondylosis is an osteoarthritis of the spine, and generates a large percentage of low back pain.) Sometimes this condition is called "facet syndrome."
Read sites like spineuniverse.com and spine-health.com for more information on lumbar spondylosis and non-surgical treatment options.
I have lower back arthritis and also in my neck and hip bursitis caused by lower back. I have been seeing a pain dr for 5 years and I had an ablation done which burns the nerve. Its been working for 5 years. I also have them in my neck. For my hip the pain dr does epidurals which work but for only a couple of months.
I feel your pain and hope you get relief soon. I am also dealing with horrible lower back and hip pain. Sharp pains going down my legs and even burning or electric feeling in my hips. I had two epidurals and cortisone shots which did nothing for me. I take muscle relaxers, nerve meds and narcotics that still don't help the pain. I am 27 years old and I look like i'm 90 walking around hunched over or with a cane because I am scared I am going to fall again. I had an EMG done which came back positive for nerve and muscle damage and have 3 herniated discs, 1 bulging, an annular tear, mild degenerative disc and moderate central canal stenosis. Recently I started having tremors in my hands too. I can't do any sort of therapy cause it hurts too much. I am going to see a neurosurgeon to see what he says and I recommend you do also.
Your not the first person I heard mention that they woke up pain free from hotel beds its very strange. lol. Imagine calling a hotel up asking where did you get their mattresses from? haha. Well good luck!
have you tried alternative treatments? I have noticed meditating helps reduce pain and promote relaxation. The Mind-Body Connection is very powerful. Visualization is something I also do to help promote healing and the relaxation response, but frankly I have not had the best luck treating my chronic back pain with the Mind-Body connection alone.The suggestions and methods people mentioned do also work, but you have to be willing to make the effort and give it some time to be effective.
