I have a LOT of back pain.
First of all, I have pronounced scoliosis, so the severe back pain I have endured for most of my adut life, I have attributed to my scoliosis (inherited) Now I can look at my back thru a mirror and I can clearly see why I would be having pain-- my spine curves quite remarkably from shoulder blades, and the curve between my lower back and end of the spine (right at my tailbone) is very pronounced.
I accepted back pain at an early age (19), and I do believe that the pain I've had for the past 35 yrs has been due to scoliosis, even tho it is said that scoliosis does not cause pain.
But, I am responding here to tell you that the severe, lower back pain I have suffered from for the past 2 years is DIFFERENT from what I've experienced before. Pain killers do not touch it and occasionally it is crippling and unbearable.
There are SO many reasons for back pain, I think you check in w/ your Dr, kinda asap.
Bit 1972: Acute and chronic tonsillitis, UTI, miscarraige, appendicitis, hypoglycemia, chronic neck pain w/ crushed vertibrae, chronic severe back pain, mitral valve prolapse, depression, resolution?
Bit Mother's Day 2007: Lyme, Babesia microti, hypothyroidism, EBV, HHV6, Parvovirus B19, low adrenals &misc other hormones, depression, anxiety, more of the above.
What don't these nasty bugs cause?
CD57= 60, so we're in pretty good shape.
