Hello,

My name is Christine, I am 29. I have had back pain with sciatica for the past 9 months, started just before Christmas 07. I went to my Dr. in Feb of 08 and she told me to take muscle relaxants and ibuprofin. The muscle relaxants only made me sleep and if I wanted to ibuprofin to keep my pain at bay i would have had an ulcer within a month! So I went to Chiro and that took away about 85% of the pain. Then about 4-6 weks ago it came back. So I recently went back to the DR and he sent me for an MRI and I have a herniated disc at L5-S1 and L5 has slipped out of position which i think is Spondy? I am going to a neurosurgery and spine place on 10/17 and I am very curious to see what they suggest for treatment.
