Patient :I have DDD, Fibro, pernicious anemia, anxiety, diverticulits, just to name a few things... last couple of days my back has hurt so bad I have been in tears, I take Gabapentin 600 mg/4xday, Hydro 3/325 2xday, meloxicam 15 mg 1x, Seroquel 50mg 1x, Zoloft 50 mg 1x, omeprazole 40 mg 1x and yesterday I broke into my old morphine prescription (15 mg) and took one so that I could sleep. I also took 750 mg robaxin twice yesterday. finally got some sleep, felt a little better this morning and then about an hour ago it started again. L4/L5 are bulged and slightly herniated but my entire spine hurts, when I sit it feels like a 50 lb weight on my tailbone tryig to rip my spine out my lower extremities, when I walk I cannot stand up straight, around the bra strap line in my back the muscles are very tight and it just aches something fierce. when I sit or lay it just throbs, like the back reallhy needs to be popped or rearranged....
Symptoms: Back pain, cannot stand up straight, legs shake when trying to walk, arms shake when trying to hold something ( left more than right) shooting pains down my legs into my ankles, like someone is shocking me with a cattle prod
