Hi, I'm new to all this. I was just diagnosed with spondylosis after being told for months that is was just bulging disks, as they couldn't find the fractures before, and I'm too young (15) for many other back conditions. I had been pain free for a while with physical therepy before getting this diagnosis, but got rechecked after a sudden day of pain that left me unable to walk for that day. I now am fitted with my brace, and, finally, here is the problem.
I had been fairly pain free before I got the brace, but now as I've been wearing it more (since June 26) I've been getting for painful back spasms and such that my regular pain meds can't completely cover up. Is this normal? Or should I call to talk to a doctor or the brace technician?
As I said, I am very new to the brace, and most other things with this condition, and really don't know much about it other than the basics, help would be greatly appreciated!!
