~X( Hi all,
I am new to the forum,so will try and keep it brief!.
I had a tear in the disc annular 3yrs ago L5,S1.I did it at work,i am a nurse.
I have seen,neuro,s,pain specialists,physio and osteopaths.
At the moment,i have lower back pain,difficulty walking and often walk with a right sided limp.I am worse led down,sat,driving etc.I have horrific aching feet that keep me awake all night.
So now i have been told its mechanical back pain.
I feel i am being fobbed off i am only 35 with a young child and no life.
I am unsure whether to just accept it or push for an oppinion from the orthopeadics,ask for a discogram?.
Has anybody any advice or been in a similar situation?
Thanks for reading
