Hi ALL, :H
I had thought I would introduce myself as a lot of others have by telling the full story but after reading only a few "posts" I start to think maybe I'm not that bad? I will say I have lived with this pain since I was 16, I am now 23! I have tried EVERY therapy available. There is soo much more to it. I know the daily pain I have to contend with :''( but I now see there are soo many people out there who are worse off than I.
So instead of posting a whole lot of whinging I will ask for help.
Now that I have the results from MRI scan, although I don't know the medical term for my condition so am hoping someone is able to name it for me...
"The right posterior paracentral and posterolateral L5/S1 disc protrusion does cause significant compression of the right S1 nerve root within the lateral recess" - I am inclined to just say DDD?
The questions I have are:
*Is there anyone who has had quite similar diagnosis, what path did you take and the outcomes of such?
*Is this a case for a Nurosurgeon or Ortho?
*Is there evidence to suggest emotional disruption in life causes pain to increse/flare?
I await any reply. Am open to all advice. Thank-you
