My husband has pains on lower back, butt, and legs. He also has pains in his lower abdomen. He constantly has the unsettled feeling in his chest that he is unable to describe. On top of that, he has terrible headaches everyday. All these pains are relentless and are really wearing him and I down.
He is diagnosed with intermittent claudication that could contribute to his leg pains. Vascular surgeon recommends him to keep walking to build collateral arteries. Recent test shows slight improvement.
He has lumbar stenosis. That could be cause of his back, butt, and leg pains. He had many physical therapies, acupunctures, and several steroid shots; none works. Finally he had back surgery day after christmas, still recovering and still having same pains he has before surgery. He is taking norco, as needed; but it is not working well.
His chest feeling is being treated as general anxiety. Currently taking zoloft 100mg daily. That feeling still comes and goes.
He is taking plavix 75mg, lasix 20mg, lipitor 10mg, metoprolol 50mg, lisinopril 40mg for his heart condition.
Along with all those meds, he is also taking tamsulosin 0.4mg for his prostate.
We are not sure what is causing his headache, chest discomfort, and why he is still feeling pains in his back, butt, and legs even after surgery.
Anyone has any opinion if all the meds my husband is taking could have negative interactions that is causing some of his pains? And any experience about pains after lumbar surgery?
