Hi, i've suffered with back pain since the birth of my last child in 2003. The doctors kept blaming it on the pregnancy but it continued to get worse. i've been on pain meds but recently stopped and made an appt with a back surgeon....the most painful part is my tailbone...i did some research and came across spina bifida occulta and i think thats the problem with that part and i'm hoping something can be done about it. i don't have a problem with pain meds but the dr's are so freaky about drug seeking you almost can't get them. i don't go for those steroid injections because it doesn't solve anything and doesn't always work...i either want it fixed or given meds to keep me as comfortable as possible.
