My name is Sarmad Qureshi and I hail from Karachi, Pakistan. I am 35 years old.
My condition now is a lot better as I went in for an endoscopic disktectomy for a degenerated herniated L4-L5.
What led me to it is unknown, I have yet to narrow down the cause of the herniation or degeneration.
My condition was not being catered to by any therapy (tried all, starting from acupuncture, hydro-therapy to physio) It was a mechanical issue and was dealt with mechanically.
I suffered for 18 months when I went in for a nerve conduction test and that revealed nerve damage in 2 nerves, that's what led me to a surgery conviction.
Now I'm looking to learn from people here on how to keep my spine healthy, epecially when I'm in the crucial recovery phase.
Look forward to reading and reseaching things here, if anything remains unanswered, I shall post away
