I have had bad back pain ongoing for about 4+ years, however the past 4+ months have been detrimental pain. :( So bad and so intense that I can no longer even exercise. I can barely walk from my car to my desk at work without wincing in pain.
Well, after an X-Ray which unfortunately found nothing, a physical examination and an MRI the doctor has an answer! :)
It took changing doctors to someone who actually cared and paid attention to get my much needed (and might I say deserved) answer, well worth the money.
The discs in my back now lack any "buffer" or cartilage in between them which now causes them to rub together and bulge at times. VERY bad pain.
They are sending me for physical therapy and have given me an anti inflammatory to take twice daily to reduce swelling.
I hope things begin to improve soon. :)
