hello everbody.
my names jade im 20 years old.
im a photography student.

i have had chronic back pain for 6 years now, which was caused by being kicked in the ribs by a gang when i was 14.
now 6 years on the pain is in my spine, lower back, legs, neck and can even goes to my arms and hands on a bad day.
only now am i getting an mri scan to see if there is anything they can see and do.

i have had a long battle with the docters about opiates and narcotics due to the fact they swear everyone can get addicted.
as im in the uk its harder to get painkillers such as vicodin ect.
i am currently on a opiate called co-dydramol and co-proxamol.
these dont work if atall and im currently trying to get my doctor to let me have somthing stronger, as im so young she is concerned with how i might cope with painkillers.

i totally understand what people go through, the doctors dont listen, they contradict themselfs, they are scared to issue certain if any pain meds.
and if your young like me they belittle you.

i joined this comunity so i can make friends who might understand me.
feel free to add me to friends i tend to ramble on about photography, or my back hehe

-jade

MY husband has back surgery when he was 16, he had lower lumbar surgery to remove a disk and he is now 43. Up until last year he still suffered bouts of pain and had trouble getting up out of bed because of the pain. In January a friend of his gave him a bottle of a juice called Monavie. Have you heard of it? It contains 19 fruits, including the key fruit the acai berry and glucosomine. Let me tell you within the week he was pain free. We could not believe it. Maybe this can help you. Check it out: www.mymonavie.com/gregandaurorarichard

chronic back pain

hi Jade. i understand your chronic back pain. i'm a prior chronic back pain sufferer, and now have a personal informational blog on it to help others with the same problem. I also totally understand how you get little to no help, particularly the "Western medicine", doctors, etc., and all they know how to do is prescribe medications instead of getting to the source of the back pain cause.

i'm also a photography nut :)

feel free to contact me. i'd be happy to do my best to try to help you figure out what the problem(s) is/are to get you Real relief. There can be a lot of causes and symptoms, and they can accumulate on top of each other and cause more problems.

Take care.

Julie
