I know it's been a long time since I've been online, but I have a question. My back has been getting worse and worse for the last 3 years. My doctor gives me lidoderm patches, hydrocodone and exercises but it doesn't seem to be helping. I really need to find out what is causing the pain and if it is Crohn's related. What kind of doctor should I go to? A spine specialist or a rhemutolgoist (sp?).
