Pain relief not working

Dec 28, 2014 5:41 AM

I have been suffering lower back pain for several years, though the pain appears in episodes every few months lasting a week of so. Over the counter pain medication does not work at all which I find strange. I have no idea what has caused the pain, there was no trauma at all.

I'm off for scans this week. What could be causing this pain that medication doesn't seem to help with?

Many conditions could and I'd need to know more about your symptoms and any tests but you need to go to a doctor for pain control

Danielle I've been having the same problem as yours and I now haven't still find any cure or prevention to this pain
