I have read through other posts regarding this but thought I would just start a new one instead of asking on every one already posted.
I am a 40yo female with back pain: Middle back, feels like someone is crushing my spine. It wakes me up crying out. I have to immediately sit up in a chair and lean over. I have pain meds from a shoulder surgery I had in Sept thank god or I cannot move, breath or anything for hours. I have had several different beds af varying degrees of softness/stiffness. Seems sleeping in a recliner is the only way where I do not have such a severity of pain.
This has been going on for about 2 years. I was slammed sideways down onto a strong plastic outside chair a few months before the pain started (don't ask).
I also had noticed if I do not take pain meds (once in am 7 1/2 mg of norco and 5 mg in evening) I have restless leg syndrome all day, at least that is what I think it is, my legs feels like they have no air, have to stretch them every few minutes, it is maddening and brings me to tears. I do have an appt with a specialist this week but curious on everyone's health and so forth and if they have the leg issue as well.
Thanks to all who replies!!
