My husband has been suffering for 10 days with back pain and leg pain. MRI showed L5 disc protrustin. With bludging at L4 and L5-S1. He is unable to walk at all. Any time he puts pressure he get incapcitating pain. He is now able to crawl to bathroom. Dr. put him on Steroids and this is day 4 on them. Not seeing any improvement. PT. told us that therapy has to wait untill he is in less pain. Just don't know if this will ever get better. Anybody out there that have advice? I am willing to listen. We can't get into specialist until Dec. 2nd.
