I have had a bit of lower back pain for about 5 years now, but just lately the pain has been getting more frequent and sharper. This involved a trip to the Doctors early last week, and he sent me for an X-ray. The Doc has put me on Co-codmol, which I must warn you are very strong pain killers.
On my return visit this week I have been diagnosed with Osteo Arthritis in 2 of my discs and a narrowing of a third disc. I have to wait up to 12 weeks for physio. I suppose that is a result of getting older and still burning candles at both ends.
