After 6 years (yes I know, 6 years!!) I was finally sent for an MRI scan 2 weeks ago and had the results a little over a week ago. The results showed that one of the disks in my spine has degenerated quite rapidly and even though I am 24 years old (and a month!!) I have a back of a 50+ year old. I have been telling my Dr and numerous physio's for the past few years that some of the pain has felt like it has been in my spine not in my muscles but I was given the same speach that it may feel like that but it jus tmy nerve system over reacting to the constant pain that I have been in.
It started 6 years ago when I bent over to tie my trainers befer heading to uni and I tore muscle at the base of my back (or so the Dr said I had) and over the past few years the pain has come and gone and now is apparent 8% of the time. As you can imagine this can have an effect on everything in life from working, shopping and driving, to sleeping, walking and general day to day activities round the home.
After being finally diagnosed correctly and not just being fobbed off with the usual "it's your muscles blah blah blah" I feel more low than ever. Not only do I have PCOS (problems with my ovaries) but now a serious condition with my back. Has anyone been through similar, or have the same diagnosis?
