    Can anyone relate? I have been suffering from back pain for about a year now. The pain gets so bad, so intense I start vomiting. I am so frustrated because I feel like doctors and some of my work mates do not believe me.

    I have missed a lot of work lately and I am on restrictions. I deal with heavy files all day long and I cannot lift anything over 5 lbs. My boss has to get people to bring the heavier files to me. Then I have to get them to take them back to the files stacks to be filed away.

    I feel bad but what can I do. I just started physical therapy and I files workman's comp sense I initially hurt my back at work.

    I thought this pain was related to my sickness (cyst) back in may but the pain hasn't gone away. My surgeon said all along the pain I was having didn't make sense.

    Just venting I guess.

    try to get an MRI scan done.. it can tell if something is pressing agains nerve sacs within your vertabrae.

    its not something they can tell by examining you on a table. i sympathise..back pains are a pain in above the arse.

    I had terrible back pain for years, herniated disks and stuff. I was given two options by the medical community, surgery (no guarantee) or pain meds. The meds messed up my stomach so that was out.

    I would sob with pain and couldn't walk 1 block without crying.

    Thank God I found Network Chiropractic. It's a mind-body connection which helps you to let go of trapped emotional energy in your spinal column which causes pain. A combination of mild spinal adjustments and breathing.

    I can now walk almost a mile before having to sit down and haven't had a pain pill in over a year.
