Until my appointment on the 17th. I have herniated disc at L5-S1 and one of my vertebrate is shifted out of position. Does anyone know how common it is to have both of these conditions? I have been trying to get my MD office to call me back so I can get the "Official" diagnosis names and do a little more research. My MD didnt give me any tips on what I should and shouldnt be doing: Is intermediate hiking ok? What are the better ways to sit when I am at my desk all day? I try to get up every hour and take a quick walk. Are there certain things I should be avoiding? I know not to run...especially since I forgot and ran a few steps earlier this evening with the dog (ouch all the way down my leg!). It really sucks how much this limits you on doing whatever it is you may want to do. Also are there any exercises I should be doing to help my back or is it better to wait to see what the Dr at the neurosurgery and spine place says? I stretch all the muscles in my legs everyday.
Thanks for any input!
