Good Morning my name is***** have very several pain in

Resolved Question:

Good Morning my name is***** have very several pain in my back since I delivered my son. He gonna be one year old now. This pain getting worse and worse day by day. A lot of time I tried to speak with my GP even I changed at least 2 times but nothing happened. I have two more children and it's very hard for me because this time walking is very difficult I cannot get out from bed it's hurting in every position I can't take any rest. Under pregnancy I was diagnosed with DVT and unfortunately noone checked me up since last year July. My back pain started in low back left side. Now I can feel full area is hurting but still I can feel my left side is hurting more sometimes for example when I need to force myself to walk that I can feel pain left side below my tummy. Please help me I hate my life and I hate myself too much. Not only I am struggling, my kids as well. PLEASE HELP ME

OK Andrea. You need an MRI of the spine to see exactly what the problem is. You likely have a disk problem like one or more ruptured disks and you may also have some severe arthritic changes in the spine itself. After that I would refer you to a physiatrist--a physical medicine and rehabilitation MD specialist--for a customized treatment program to relieve your pain. I would hope that your doctor would get the MRI and give you the referral to the specialist
