Don't know where to turn for help

I'm 37 years old I'm a mother of 3 I work 12 hours a day even though I don't know how I do it. I come home usually in tears from my chronic pain all over, and a bad lower back. I've seen several doctors one for each thing wrong. Because no one what's the responsibility of me n my needs. I need help !! It's mentally wearing me out. My quality of life is definitely going down hill. I read several blogs and I can relate to all. Don't know how to respond to them tho. Mother needing answers, please help!!! Thanks in advance

    Have the doctors sent you to a pain clinic? While i don't use it myself, medical marijuana helps many people. Kratom (a leaf from a tree) helps many people. I use an ointment mixture of lidocaine and dmso. It helps my nerve pain a little. I was just reading about combining ibuprofin and acitominophen together and it is safe and more effective that way (google it). I'll give it a try. Tramadol helps me but sometimes it makes me feel not so good. I don't tolerate drugs very well. Just some ideas for you...

    When you say you have a bad lower back what exactly do you mean? Have you been diagnosed with any sort of radiculopathy due to bulging/herniated discs? Without more details it’s hard to say how best to proceed.

  • If it was me, I would seek help first for whatever is hurting the most. Sometimes that can leed to other issues because of the way you sit, stand or walk. From my experience the lower back can make you loose your mind when going through the process of elimination. Once you narrow the main issue out you can get a lot of good advice on this site. Good Luck and I hope you have better days soon!
