Does anyone in this forum know if you can cause further damage to a pinched nerve in your back? I have a herniated disc and the "bulge" is pressing on a spinal nerve causing EXTREME pain. The pain can stab me when I'm doing the assigned PT exercises, when I'm trying to sleep, or just going for a walk. Am I supposed to immediately stop what I'm doing, or press on? I've asked this question of my spine specialist and PT, but never get a real answer.
My heart goes out to EVERYONE suffering from back pain. It's like having a migraine headache 24/7. As I've mentioned on this forum before, I'm doing everything my spine specialist is asking me to do, but no relief after 9 months. It's so FRUSTRATING!
Thanks for allowing me to vent... and more importantly learn from all your experiences and knowledge.
