Will there come a time when doctors can properly diagnose lower back pain? I'm so fed up with the tests and no answers.
Up to 95 percent of chronic lower back pain is never understood. Unfortunately, unlike a fracture or a ruptured appendix - for example - an injury to the lower back is most often not obvious and very difficult to pinpoint as to what exactly is causing the pain and what will help relieve it.
It is very discouraging to live with the pain and not know what to do about it. Have you looked into local pain clinics? They may be able to guide you through the process of pain control if you've not been able to reach that stage yet.
