my back has always given me problems but I got up one morning and could not hardly walk! It felt like someone was squeezing my muscle in my buttocks! So I told the Dr. and she put me on Ibuprofen 800mg and then I had a MRI done and shows I have spinal stenosis, pinched nerve on left side and sciatica! Some days I hurt worse than others and that is when I have to walk a long way or cleaning my floors! The ibuprofen works sometimes so she prescribed me Hydrocodon/Acetaminoph 7.5/325 but it doesn't help! I am hurting down the back of my legs and toes are cramping at nite and numbness and tingling, I am on disability!
