My mother is in her mid 70's. Arthritis is in her side of the family. Recently she has had intense pain from her neck down her spine to base of back. This is continuous and all day.
She is using heat packs, walks as much as she can to take mind off it but it is overpowering.
Went to consultant yesterday and he put her on Solpadeine for the moment while waiting for X-Ray results taken yesterday also. Im just wondering has anyone come across this kind of back pain? Most i have heard is neck pain radiating across shoulder or lower back pain down leg but not pain from neck to lower back.
Appreciate any pointers as to what this might be & any relief options if any
