I was injured at work the 19TH of November. I had an MRI done and have seen a Neurosurgeon. My MRI shows degenerative things on L3, L4, L5, and a protrusion, spinal stenosis, etc... Anyway, my job is good about taking care of the workers comp. I am in pain 24 hours a day in the lower back and butt area. My husband has to bring me 2 pain pills in the morning and I wait 30 minutes before I can even get out of bed. I have throbbing pain back there constantly. When my Dr. pushed just a little on the small of my back I screamed and almost came off the table. The MRI they did was with no contrast, and I'm afraid this doctor is going to order one tomorrow, and I know I can't lay on my back again for that. Any thoughts as to why so much pain?
