recently learned about this site and I wanted to try and find people with similar problems like mine. My name is Teodor Stoyanov (24) from Bulgaria and I have a back problem from 16 months. It is a dull pain in my lower back (left and right) that never disappears.
It all sarted when I lifted around 50kg from unconvinient position. I felt a strong sharp pain in my lower back (near the gluteus maximus). I could hardly
walk the next month, but I thought it will go away by itself. After a month of pain I visited a manual therapist, but the therapy did not have any effect. He tried to diagnose me without even an x-ray. He said that I have a disk protrusion and it happened because I use a computer very often... Then I made a MRI scanning. The results were that there isn't anything serous that might be causing the pain. The was no hernation of the disks, but I have scoliosis in the lower back and they also found a Smorle's node, but I was told that this cannot cause the pain. During the last year,
I have been through several treatments but with no effect. During the last 15 months I've had some strange changes in the pain I feel.
During the first six months or so, there were a couple of times where I didn't feel pain for about 2-3 days. Then in the next six months, I had times when the pain concentrated in one point only and it was gone from my lower back. Then, after 2 days the pain starts returning to my lower part and disappearing from the point. Another thing that happened is that I started having this shooting pain in the "tail" - the lowest part of the spine. It comes for moment only, but it is very strong and moves my whole body. I used to have this as a child but very rarely. Another thing that happened is that when I had to go to the toilet (number 2) my pain increased.
Many things happened for 15 months and I tried different therapies but there was no effect. I also tried with medication: Milgamma N, Mydocalm, and Flamexin for two weeks, but it didn't work. I have been consulting with maybe 10 doctors but no one seems to understand what is going on. That is why I am turning to this forum, to find someone who could have experience with the same kind of problems.
