Ok I'm new to the forum found it after doing a Google search on trying to find out what is causing my sever pain. about
a year ago I was breaking up some crates at work using a sledgehammer *ya I know what your thinking already!*. I twisted or something and hurt myself as the story always goes that way when your using a sledgehammer right? Well it hasn't been all to bad at first sure it hurt like hell but seemed to go away for a little bit then it would come back. I'm a gamer and spend a lot of time at the computer after work and always thought that my desk was causing the pain as the chair/desk isn't ergonomic.
Now pain isn't something new to me as I have a slipped disc in lower back and the disc above/below are bulging from the pressure so its normal everyday pain for me. But in the last month the pain that I've been experiencing is anything but normal, its located right behind my left shoulder blade itself. Its feels like someone is taking a chisel to that specific spot and it comes in we'll say waves. You know how the ocean has waves that splash at the beach well every time a I feel pain a darn wave splashed up on shore. I've tried Alleve, Motrin, Bio freeze, heating blanket, ice pack, doctor gave me Volteren Gel *SP*, and now he has me on Hydrocodon which isn't really helping.
I do get relief from the pain if I'm sitting in a chair and i slouch down enough to were the weight of my back is on the chair so its like pressure on the spot helps stop the pain. I'm sorry I'm not good at describing pain. But when my fiance massages in the Volteren Gel just her pressing on the area takes the pain away immediately almost withing like 20-30 seconds.. She stops and the pain comes back within we'll say 2-3 minutes. The pulsing waves of pain don't get any less with 7.5mg Hydrocodon meds, I just can't get relief and I absolutely hate taking medicine, I've dealt with my lower back pain since I was 9 when I got hit by a car that caused the problem and I'm now turning 30 in a couple months.
SO that is 21 years with dealing with pain everyday of my life without using drugs to solve the problem. What can I do to help? Pain is driving me insane I just want to scream all the time!!
