Good morning I live in switzerland and 3 weeks ago, after some days of increasing back pain , i went to see a doctor. I made a Xray exam and they diagnosed me with lombalgie, scoliose and discopthie L5 S1. they prescribe me: arthrotec 75; tramal retard 50;mydocalm and pantoprazole sandoz 40. and physiotherapie ( for the moment I had already 5 seassions- massage with ultra-sounds). When I began with the back pain ( in the bottom side of the back, particulary painfull in the right side) I began limiting my locomotion, i had reall pain while walking our sitting. Now after 3 weeks with the pharmacological treatment and phisioterapie i fell that pain goes and come, but I have problems walking because I still feel the pain, like while walking I walk slowly and I feell that the bottom of my back goes really thick, I can´t explain in a better way :( and the more I walk it worst and then wen i get home for the rest of the day I feel pain even in the back og my neck , like it gets really thick. its been 3 weeks that Im at home, not working (i work in a supermarket) and I don´t know whY am i not better, why can´t I walk normally? should I be worried? should I try other kind of treatments? I never had back problems before, the only health problems that I had was 3 pneumonies and ashtma problems. nothing more. could you please advice me. Thank you so much for your attention. best regards Liliana
