I am suffering from a bulging disc, at the lower part of my back.
i have been out of work for 1year and 9 months.i have had x-rays, blood tests,phyisotherapy,(still going)chriopractice.and none of these help me in the slighest.recently i had an mri scan done, and it showed that i had a bulging disc!i have been waiting, to see a speaclist to find out what they are going to do?i am in absolutley horrible pain, were i cant sit, stand,lay,or walk for long periods of time.i am taking two lots of pain killers and sleeping tablets to ease the pain.
hey presto not helping.
I have been to see the specialist today and he annoyed me...he told me theres "nothing that he can do for me"he also said that "if i was to take 100 people and give them an mri scan all would have a bulging disc"!!!!this i strongly disagree with,as if eveyone had this pain that im going through,the counry would be in uproar,as nonone would be working.this i have to say is very painful and i wouldnt wish this on anyone.
Ihave asked for a second opinion and now waiting for that.i know these things are not simple to operate on thats not what i want.i would like them to dignose me properly, and see other alternatives that there might be,the specialist that i saw was just not intrested and i found him to be arrogant in all the times that i had to see him,all in the 1 year and 9 months that i have been under him.i am constanly in pain 24 7 and certainly not happy i have gone from some healthy 28 year old to woman who cant do anything without help or taking my time.and that is supposed to be normal?? i think not...
