Ok so a little about my history first. I was first diagnosed with dehydrating disc back in 2005 after an MRI following a car wreck. In 2007 i was helping my family lay tile and sneezed while reaching for tile. The next day I was in horrible pain. The following week I had another MRI and was in formed that I not only had dehydrating disc but degenergitive disc disease (I'm still unclear the diffefemce) at 22 I was put on an array of anitinflamatories, nerve pain, muscle relaxers and pain meds and told I would never be a nurse like I had hopped for. Since then I have had multiple med changes and 9 rounds of three shots of spinal epidural injections.
In March my orthopedic said he was afraid to do anything else and he thought it was time to see a spinal/neyrology specialist. Off I go to him and the week after the MRI I was being admitted to the hospital for 50% removal of l5 s1
All was amazingly great I was walking the day of sugary. Not pain free but at a bearable level. That was on may 30. Two weeks ago my family went on vacation to the mountains and my aunt and my niece were playing when I slipped on a rock and hit my back right where my scar is. (Years ago I was told by the ortho if I hit the ground stay till medical help arrived. Well because I landed in about three foot of water and not wanting to freak my niece out i simply jumped up. Well today. About 15 days give or take from the fall I was at a friend's house and went to stand up and I thought I was going to faint the pain was so intense. I came home and laid down in the couch and that's where I have been for the last 5 hours scared to move much.
Could this be a delayed reaction to the fall. I have an appt in 2 days with my sugran but I'm wondering if I should call his emergency line or if im.being paranoid this far out from.everyrhing.
