Back pain and Aspirin allergy
« on: January 15, 2019, 12:46:56 PM »

Long post here, bear with me

I am 32. I have had a dull aching lower back for about 3 years. It started on and off, usually after playing hockey. There’s a lot of hunching and staying low in hockey, and I think my being 6’3” exacerbated that. For about 2 years now it is a constant ache. No leg pain. No shooting pains in my legs. Just a dull ache in my lower back, especially in the “in between” stages of sitting to standing or vice versa. It’s enough that I very rarely skate anymore because of the pain for a full day or two after the skates come off.

I went to my doctor. Then a chiropractor. Then a personal trainer. Then physical therapy. Then a back specialist who took more scans and literally said “we see this a lot in people your age. We don’t know what is causing it but it will work itself out and go away eventually.”

Me being a stubborn guy and thinking I know more than many people that are so called professionals of their trade, I have been doing my own research and did a little self diagnosis, landing on potentially axspa. It’s an inflammatory spine muscle issue that will not be seen on any scans as it doesn’t alter the vertebrae or spine. That said, I did some research on NSAID dosages and found that I should be safe under 10,000 mg per day is aspirin at my size. I usually take some 500mg bayer, maybe 2-3, if it gets really bad one morning. I decided to give myself 1,500mg three Times a day to see if it would help. After 2 days, I noticed a difference. My back was feeling way better. Not nearly as stiff and very little aching. However, After 3 days, my entire body broke out into itchy hives. It wasn’t worth the trade off. Needless to say I have stopped aspirin immediately. I am now on day 5 of this hellish itching with no relief found from oatmeal, calamine, benadryl, ice, or any other antihistamine. And I’m on day 2 out of 14 of Prednisone that I hope starts working soon.

Anyone else experience NSAID allergy?

I have a world of back issues. I however am allergic to acetaminophen products like Tylenol. NSAIDS I can take and that's what I usually do because I don't tolerate a lot of pain meds well.

The bad news for both of us is that both NSAIDS and acetaminophen products are hard on the liver with prolonged use.

I hope you have a speedy recovery and can find something that works for you for the pain.

I’ve been working on correcting my posture. I think that is a big factor as well. I spend lots of time driving for work and I’m positive my posture is incorrect.

I just wish I could get some sort of answer so I could put together a game plan as a solution. But first, I just need to stop the damn itching! Lol. This is rough. It looks similar to the poison ivy I had when I was younger

Check out Fibromyalgia.

It is a Muscle Caused Pain mostly found in the back and No One knows where it comes from and why some folks get it and others don't. There are no real tests for it either, so it is very hard to diagnose unless your familiar with it.

My Sister deals with it all the time and it can get so bad it will make you stop doing anything until it settles down.

I believe part of my issues are from it as well, but never called that. I had 2 different Drs tell me that my pain was very hard to diagnose as it was partly the dics and partly the muscles and "there is no one thing I can point to and say if we fix that it will end your pain."

I was given Muscle Relaxers which seemed to help and for anti-inflammatory a special mix of Advil called Duexis that is 800 mg of Advil Plus another ingredient similar to Pepcid. 

I hope you find something to help you.

What worked and what didn't and why. In the end go enough days and then, Today is the day that it will all come together and the Fish Gods will smile.

I hurt my back in the worst way trying to lift my boat trailer (don't ask). Chiropractor "treatment/adjustment" put me in the emergency room screaming with pain. I went to a "pain management doctor" and he gave me a spinal injection each week for 3 weeks. Today I'm as loose as a long neck goose.
