New guy here....just found this place. I am 35, married with 4 kids. I originally injured my back in 1996. No one would do an MRI all they did was xrays. I kept getting everything looks good. Well Dec 16th I finally got them to give me an MRI. What the MRI showed was (4) Herniated discs in various places of my back, (4) Bulging discs in various places. Disc degeneration, steninosis and a few other things I don't have handy. Now I have a quick question for ya here. Will I ever get better? They are recommending surgery, because one of the herniated discs is pushing on my spinal cord. I also have an annular tear on one of the herniated discs too.
