thank you all for your support...i was kinda at a point where i felt nobody understood how ridiculous my pain was and im sure ppl even thought i was faking but it dificult to do anything when my back is messing up. it sucks that everything i do daily hurts my back in some way. Is there anyway that somebody could post possible things that might be wrong with me? just like a big list or something....or since webMD cant support diagnosis im more than willing to recieve a personal message to my email firstname.lastname@example.orgView Thread
thank you....this is what i was looking for when i came to web md....since ur an expert maybe u can answer me a question....the back pain i have is low and sharp but i can feel it on the sides of my spine not in the middle. if i make my back straight it really hurts and shoots a pain up my back taking the breath out of me. when i went to the d before they said i had scant amounts of blood in my urine.....is it possible for back pain to be related with kidneys? i mean if in fact thats where the blood is coming from idkView Thread
not trying to be a jerk but if i cant get help on web MD then why is this site available again? seems rdiculous that no advice or help can come of me posting something on a website that is regulated by doctors. i understand that it is a legal thing and nobody wants to be held liable for false statements or things like that but i seriously cant get an POSSIBLE diagnoses? not definitive just possible.View Thread
also i have tried norcos and other pain meds....they seem to only work on me when i have headaches but not my back (i think its too sever of a problem for pills to fix) but i have tried marijuana and that seems to help alot but i wouldnt wanna look like a pothead if i asked a Physician at the E.R. for a medical mj card View Thread
My name is anthony and im 22 yrs old. i wiegh alot but hold it very well. im 66'6". i went to the E.R. for extreme morning back pain late last year and the the guy who checked me out was super rude to me and basically told me im fat and i need to lose wieght and all my problems will go away. my wieght is not the issue.....it starts when i wake up every morning. it feels like somebody is digging a knife into my back starting from the bottom (where its the worst) and dragging it upwards really fast...this inturn takes my breath away and the pain is so intense i am paralyzed for a few moments whie i catch my breath and try to breath through it. i sleep on a blow up matress. ive tried the floor and regular beds...ive tred a pillow inbetween my legs...ive tried neck support. nothing works. the only slightrelief i get is when i wake up one of the 40 times at night and push myself halfway against the wall (halfway sitting up). when i use the restroom for a bowel movement i yell in pain during the clean up process because i have to twist my body to reach. it takes hours to finally go away bu it always a little bit there. like ill be walking and ill move the muscles in my lower back slightly and pain will shoot up..its incredibly sharp and intense, this will almost always take my breath away and stop me for a few minutes. i bead sweat while it happens and grit my teeth..im losing so much sleep im at my wits end. i dont have insurance and scared that the E.R. will just tell me something just to get me to leave and not give me a proper diagnosis. i have a baby girl on the way and i cant afford to not be able to jump to her aid when she needs it. i cry alot because of this and i simple am exhuasted. idk what to do.View Thread
