I fell backwards onto a bathtub for no apparent reason dec. 2013. Fractured sacral pelvis which healed while Inwsd in hospital. After 15 Days there, was on hospice for a month and half. Upon walking, with a walker, the back pain came on gradually. This was spring 2014, By October, Acupuncture did not help the pain as it used to in earlier years when I had lesser problems. I started kidney dialysis this month, then help from an osteopedist. Nothing he ordered helped, the pain kept increasing. Now trying a different orthopedist. So far, nothing working. Still trying!
