Chronic pain with no diagnosis

I have been suffering debilitating lower back pain since 2007. I have had facet nerve injections, MRIs of lumbar, cervical and brain and ENGs. Everything keeps coming back negative. I have no life. My life consists of two heating pads and very strong narcotics. I have bipolar disorder, generalized anxiety disorder and extreme depression. I am so tired. I have an 8 year old son who suffers because of this. I cannot go outside and run and play with him, I can’t ride bikes with him, I can’t do vacation with him and it is totally unfair to him. I cannot clean my house. I start and might get one room done and then il down for two days. My mom tells me to get up and clean and go for walks etc. It’s almost like she thinks I’m lazy and just love laying around on my butt watching the same crap, different day on TV. I am just soooo soooo tired. The pain is obviously not going anywhere. I have begged for a myelogram and/or contrast MRIs. My doctor refuses to perform these tests. I had an appt with a neurosurgeon two weeks ago and he said I had excessive rigidity in ALL my joints and ordered the MRI of my cervical and brain because the lumbar was completely normal. I called the day I had my MRI to schedule a f/u and they had scheduled it for 6/29 but neglected to inform me. I asked to speak with scheduling so I could get an earlier appt. I called again on that Friday and yesterday and noone called me back. I finally spoke with a supervisor and she r/s it for 6/22 but she also looked at my MRI report and said it was unremarkable. I know she is not the Dr. But it is so disheartening. I don’t know what to do. Please pray for me.

  1. So sorry for your pain. My daughter is dealing with the same thing for many years. She has an 8 year old daughter.
    Recently saw something new and I am very hopeful.
    I want to share with you a book called Treating and Beating Fibromalgia by Rodger Murphree. He has several web sites also like treatingandbeating .com and others. You will find a lot of information that he has published if you check the internet.

    God bless you. I hope this is helpful. I am praying for you and all chronic pain suffers.
