My back or more like pelvic muscles were hit earlyy on. NOW my lower back in the words of my son, looks like someone took a shovel and scooped it out! Forget the the years of pain or the fact my ribcage feels like it being held up bone on bone....doctors rarely ask about it. That was my first major concern and they forgot and act like its new, do i have to cry everytime i see them for them to understand. I go to my local hospital when my back and legs spasm (only if it happens at a bad time) and they know to shoot me up with motrin, muscle relaxant and some valium. All that allows me to walk out perfectly fine. This happens only after i have used cold/hot and massage therapy to halt the spasticity. I look pregnant because my back is so sunken in and my belly is so loose. My shirts get caught inside this cave of a back and rest upon my ass! Did anyonelse have back atrophy that made their body look funny and hurt, yet you were still able to walk?
