I started suffering from back pain over 7 years ago, and because i was only 16 at the time doctors just put it down to a strain. 6 month later i was told it was osteoporosis, Then a back strain, Then Sciatica and now after 3 xrays, 2 referrals to physiotherapy and a mri they say i have a prolapsed disk, Great Finally a diagnosis.
Well you would think that!! But no. The Doctor says its only a slight prolapse and its not pressing on any nerves so they don't understand where my extreme pain is coming from, so they have gave me some painkillers ( which are not doing much) and told me to come back when it gets worse. Its been constant for the past 10 month, Reducing me to tears every day. I refuse to leave the house because i don't want to be in pain, Meaning i have been off work for the past 3 month.
Does anyone know if anything else can be done or shall i just give up hope of getting my normal life back?
