back pain when sitting

I am getting so frustrated with this disease! Last week I went to the doctor because I have been having pain in my back. To me it feels like how I envision a cracked rib. I know I don't have anything like that but the doctor ordered an X-ray any way. Sometimes I feel like all these doctors are just trying to humor me at my expense. Now I am waiting for the results while I struggle with trying to be comfortable. I can't stand too long because my feet hurt. I can't sit too long or the pain in my back gets worse. The medications make me dull and no amount of stretching works. Has anyone managed a way to deal with RA back pain?

RE: back pain when sitting

That is an all too common pain for me. I have been managing it for a few years and it is very frustrating. At least when I stand it goes away for a while. My problem is that I have things to do that require sitting so I cannot be walking or standing around all the time. If you are having ongoing discomfort, try the self heating wraps. I have used them on occasion. I hate the waste from using these things but there is not much else I can do in some situations. Being medicated to a level that works would leave me unable to function.

A friend suggested the wraps. That is something to try. I know the hot showers and baths help but I would be like a raisin if I used them as often as I feel the pain.

If you are looking for something to make it less painful, I suggest Flexeril. It works enough more me to take my mind off the pain though the discomfort is still there at some level.
