i fractured the L1 and L2 transverse process wheni was in the Army back in 1986, all these years later I am now at the stage where i find it difficult to stand for a period of time and suffer chronic pain in the lower back and pain which can run down the back of the legs, also recently experienced pins and needles in both feet. i find it difficult to walk any distance, cant stand still for any longer than 5 minutes. i have been to my GP over many years and currently have co-codamol 15/500 with little relief if any. i was sent for an x-ray and was told by my GP "your buggared" GP spoke of wear and tear. im 46, anyone have any advice or similiar experiences.
