Horrible low back, hips, leg pain started 3 months ago. No injury, lifting, twisting, etc. Reason for onset unknown. Pain is worse in middle of night. Have to get up, walk, stretch, ice/heat in recliner. Have tried anti-inflammatories, pain RX.....no relief. Side effects as bad as the painful symptoms. Referred to pain mgmt specialist. Waiting for results of lumbar MRI and treatment plan going forward. Desperate for relief. Has changed my whole life.
