Hello and Welcome,
I don't have much information to add to the recommendations, but I'd like to welcome you to HW and to let you know that we understand. Back pain is something many of us suffer from in various ways. It sometimes takes a very long time to find the correct physician and then to develop the relationship needed for trust. It goes both ways, of course, so finding someone "permanent" who understands backs is an excellent beginning (after the primary care physician). If you don't have one of these already, you will need someone to do the referrals to the other specialists that you may need to see.
Many of us have found that we began with a back injury and have developed quite a few more medical conditions since. This can be from the chronic pain we experience and can result in anything from depression and anxiety to serious feet problems. Nobody can accurately predict what will come next, but a good primary physician will know how to lead you for the best results.
Please stick around and keep us advised of your progress. It's a lovely family atmosphere here and all are welcome, whethere they need support or can give support.
All my best.
