Hi 6 months ago i injured my back in the gym doing back i was in absolute pain the next day with shooting pains down down the left side of my leg i didn't think much of it at the time i thought i must of pulled a muscle in my calf or something i went on with the pain for a further day when i noticed my body was leaning to one side i was really worried that's when i went to a&e the doctor i seen said to me that ai had a slipped disc and give me diazipam then i got to no about physio and made a appointment the next week when i could get one at this time ai was really depressed because ai was in pain all the time and couldn't walk propley the next week when i went to physio they said a had a facet joint sprain and give me exercises which were a bit hard to do with the way i was at the time and the exercises didn't seem to do anything for me so at this moment in time ive had this for over 6 months after pleading with the doctors to get referred for a mri i finally got one last week and i was really worried when ai got my results the surgeon ai seen was a nice guy even he was surprised with the results he had 3 options do nothing if you can live with it that wasn't a option option 2 a injection in my spine next to the nerve compression or option 3 surgery i don't want that because i am only 24 and really worried about the complications so i am just going for the injection in the spine i would be very grateful if anyone who has had this could drop me a message please as i am getting quite worried aboutt it all and was wondering if this sort of problem ive got is permanent or after a while with plenty care and attention the problem would settle in time as i would eventually would want to go back to the gym even if it was to to light weight and exercise like cardio ai would be very grateful if anyone could reply to my message.
Many thanks Brad.
