I apologise up front, I am in awful pain and completely over it. I want to know if anyone has actually ever gotten better from a disc herniation, or is it an ongoing disaster???
I had microdisc L5S1 May 2008. Have had physio, chiro, accupuncture, ESI x 6, nerve burn! I am just not getting any stronger!
I don't know what to do. Everyone (medicals) tells me something different. I started seeing an Osteopath 3 weeks ago, and since then I am getting sciatic pain back again (which has me seriously worried). I dont even know what the real difference is between an osteo and a chiropractor.
Please - can anyone just boost my spirits tonight. I feel just way to young to have this so badly.
Sorry for the whinge....I am focussing on coping with the pain and this is my only avenue of venting.
OH yeah, joy oh joy, I am on Tramadol which makes me throw up for 12 hours too.
