Everyone has given you great information already. Don't try to do anything the doc says not to do and eat at the low end of your calorie range till you get some sort of diagnosis.

One other thing: Make sure that you talk to the doctor about your current fitness level and the fact that you don't want to gain weight.

My sympathies for the neck and back pain. My neck has begun to deteriorate, and that is enough, without the back problem, too. The heating pad, as you say, is essential.
Hooray for you, though, that you are still concentrating on eating healthy and keeping the weight off! I would imagine that extra weight would only add to the problem.

I agree that it sounds like a herniated disc. I too have had the same experience. I also had PT for it, and it helped. Now my neck is bothering me,and the report ame back that I have severe degenerative disc disease, and it will only get worse. I have almost constant back and neck pain now. My back is deteriorating as well. The pain from my neck shoots up into my skull..It is a shart pain that you get when you eat ice cream too fast or drink something cold real fast. It's with me 90% of the time now i'm on pain meds and a muscle relaxant, and I'm wedded to my heating pad. 45 minutes on, and an hour off, and so forth.

I hope you get feeling betterr eal soon. Chronic pain is the worst to deal with, and it makes you so tired. Let us know when you find out anything else.

Sounds like a herniated disc to me :-( I say this because this is what I have. The good news is that it is possible for this to go away if you are careful. I hope that they will prescribe some physical therapy for you. Until then, I would make sure be very careful with how you move and what you do. Good luck!

PS You may have to scale your exercise back when you resume your program, but believe me, the body remembers, and you should be able to get back to where you are at pretty easily.

if you can't exercise, try to eat at your lower end of your calories, keep eating healthy food, and lots of veggies. you won't do too badly. I would try to do some sort of exercise everyday still, just to keep the habit, even just stretching is worthwhile.

Success consists of a series of little daily victories.

I've been experiencing low back pain with numbness to my leg and foot for about 2 weeks. My x-rays are normal and I'm waiting for my insurance company to approve me for an MRI. I've been trying to take it easy until I get this straightened out. I'm worried that I'll have to start over again when I feel better.
