CHRONIC BACK PAIN-- i dont know what to do anymore. I want to shoot myself in the leg because the pain can not be any worse.i have tried steroid inj. the first course work many years ago, but no help now. I keep on getting very strong meds w/ some help, but the last 3 nights the apin is soooo bad i cry all night. i dont want to go to the emergency room mainlly because i would get treated like a " junkie" not a patient. ANYONE who can help w/ ANY suggestions PLEZ let me know. I told my husband to justshoot my leg off cause it cant hurt worst than that. (Of course, that wont happen). So, if there is any1 with my same situation please let me know what u know & it might help me. If my pain doesnt stop, after new years um goin in the ER....if this pain is still the same or even worse, but i HATE the ER and I really don't want to go there. Thank u
