I have a prolapsed disc in the L4/L5 region, scoliosis and side effects of sciatica down both legs. I have seen chiropractors, Oestoeptahs, I have had steroid and epidural injections in my spine, I am on daily slow release morphine tablets, and I cannot walk for more that 10 minutes straight without terrible pain. I am unsure what the next step is in my treatment is, I am unsure whether to push for surgical intervention, or do one more rund of epidural injections (bear in mind I started the morphine AFTER the epidural injections so im guessing it didnt do the trick).
My Back is so bad that I simply cannot exercise, I have tried very light exercise, walking, swimming, yoga and each one leaves me in agony and off work, I wont even let my boyfriend touch me in case it leads to sex and I end up in pain!
A friend of mine has also suggested that given my history and the fact that my issues are ongoing that I could appy for PIP Payment from the government, and a disabled badge, as I cannot get out of a car in a regular parking space, I have to get out before the car drives into the space, so cannot drive myself anywhere atm, also most days I cant even put on socks. Any advive or help is appreciated.
