It seems back in 1989 when my son was born is when the pain started. I experienced pain to the touch in my low back. I just shrugged it off as a side effect of the epidural. Nineteen years later, I still have this pain but now it is all over my body....my low back, my ribs, my thighs and shoulders. This pain in my low back is not only when I touch the area, but it's also a deep stabbing pain. I have seen orthopaedic surgeons and have had extensive x-rays, MRI's, cat scans only to come back with absolutley nothing wrong. But SOMETHING is WRONG!
When I touch the areas mentioned above, it feels as though my skin is severely bruised but with a sharp pain going straight to the bone. Like a knife is stabbing me. In the past I was prescribed Vicodin short term which did help with the back, but because Vicodin is habit forming, I chose not to continue treatment. I feel as though it is nerve related and have wondered if just maybe it is Fibromyalgia. I am not exactly sure what type of Physician Specialist to see, but the pain is getting worse not better. Can you please offer me an opinion and a starting point? I just don't know how much more pain I can take. Thank you very much for your time!
