Painful flare up lumbar spondylosis

CatoutdoorsCCatoutdoors Lockerbie UKPosts: 1
Hi Everyone I'm in the middle of a really bad 'flare up' of my lumbar spinal osteoarthritis.  I have stenosis, disc protrusion,facet joint arthritis. My neurosurgeon hadn't seen me for three years and has now discovered scoliosis. Because there is a lot going on there it is labelled 'Spondylosis.  I am finding it difficult to cope with the pain in my lumbar region radiating over to the left side. It's like the muscle is going into spasm when I try to stand or walk. I was  at a GP doctor  today who was no help whatsoever.  She asked me what happened if I straightened up ??( I was bent over )  PAIN I said !!! Didn't she know that when you bend forward you get relief due to the spaces in the lumbar region opening up. She gave me stronger codeine to take ! I take pregablin, codeine/paracetamol, diclofenic,Amitriptyline and tramadol which I haven't taken yet as I know it's an opiate the same as codeine.  Anyone have similar out there. Would be grateful for any feedback back thanks  Cat
