I am 35 y.o. and I have Arthritis in my lower back and hips. It is in my L4 & L5. I saw a rheumotologist this week and she suggested P.T. for it. I have tried it once before for about 3 months and it did nothing. Has anyone had any success with this? Also, she put me on Mobic. Has anyone had any good results with this med? Kind of frustrated because I know this isn't going to help the pain I deal with on a regular basis. Any input would be helpful!
I was hoping someone could help! I am a 35 Year Old Female. For about 2 and a half years now, I have been having pain in my lower back and hio. My ortho sent me for an MRI and he said I had Spondylolisthesis. He treated it with Physical Therapy (which didn't work) and with Pain meds. He retired about a year and a half ago and I can't find someone who will treat me because its a "Chronic Condition. I was finally sent to a pain clinic. The Dr there wants me to have Facet injections and I am so afraid to try that. I have had some cortisone injections that have done nothing. I went back to my Family Practitioner who said it sounds like I could also have a touch of arthritis in my back and hips so she set up an appt for me to see a rhrumatologist. Anyone experience anything like this? It no that I want pain meds but that seems like the only thing that helped. I am in so much pain! When I did have the pain meds I would only take 1/2 a pill at a time instead of a whole one that was prescribed. I haven't asked any Dr for them because they make you feel like your a drug addict! lol Any opinions would be appreciated!
