I am searching for treatment options for a mid back burning pain in my spine that escalates as the morning wears on. Relief is only provided if I lay down or use hydrocodone. When I was actively being poisoned (from our exterminator contaminated home), my spine would collapse and I wouldn't be able to sit upright but had to lay across a table or lay down entirely to function. MRI etc shows 'normal' aging (female soon to be 69) but I have not been able to discover information on the burning pain and what to do about it. Any help appreciated. This site has already been very helpful in discussing the P450 influence on hormones and the endocrine system and how they might be involved.
