Hi, So let me give you a litle background, for over a year now I have been suffering with lower back pain, that I now know to be a prolpased disc between l4-l5 and around 4 months after that it transfered down into my thigh, the calf and then the ankle. I was then given an MRI Where I found out I hade 2 prolapsed discs the l4-l5 one and then on to the left on S1.
On the 10th of this month, I will be going back to see my rheumotoogy consultanant to discuss my results and options, Since I've had a lot of time inbetween the MRI and this consult on the 10th.
I've looked at many treatment options to give me some insight and understanding on what the consultant will be talking about.
I know Physio will help and i don't really want to have any injections at my age of 18 incase I will be needing them later on in life, when my condition could possibly be worse.
Has anyone had the cortosone injections or anything similiar that can tell me how they worked for you, if they worked, how long they lasted and how much they helped? and if or not you would recommend them to me or not?
Since I know they do not lessen the swelling just reduce the pain I am unsure about them, as I have managed to deal with great amounts of pain and have somewhat come accustom to it.
I appreciate any help thankyou!
