Hi i am posting on here to see if anyone can give me some advice.
I am in my late 20's have suffered from back pain all year escalating to pain, pins and needles in my leg and cramps, i have visited ostepaths and physio but it has not helped (although it lightened the weight of my purse!)
Eventually i have had an mri scan last week and the results show a prolapsed disc L5/S1
i have been told i will have to wait another 2/3 months to see a spinal specialist and i assume the same again before treatment!
The more i do the worse the pain is and after a day at work i can't stand up, am hobbling around and the pain is unbearable, i can't lie on my back or my front and lying on either side is painfull!
i don't feel that i am being told if there is anything else i can do by health care professionals, i have been told by the NHS physio that they don't recommend that as it may make it worse!
can anyone recomend anything they have done that has helped as the lack of sleep for one is driving me round the bend!
i will try anything now!!
