I have just had my MRI results which say only mild wear and tear. My GP said I have a great spine for a 43 year old!! So I know this is good news - however it doesn't explain the pain I am in.
My movements are restricted - I can't pick anything up from the floor. (which is a nightmare with two sons to run around after!!) I have sciatica in both legs and always some sort of lower back/leg/foot pain. This has been going on for 6 months now.
Does anyone know what doesn't show up on an MRI? I've not had an X ray or any other tests.
Pain level is 2/3 all the time which is better than December when it reached 5/6. Some days it's bad and it never ever goes away.
Had anyone had similar experiences? With an MRI showing nothing but still in pain??
My GP said it could be ligaments and they could be pressing on the sciatic nerve - but nothing significant showed up on the MRI - he thinks it will eventually go away.
I am learning to deal with the pain, having positive days more and more - but I just wish I had answers.
I think I will be in pain forever - My nana is 92 years old and she can do more than me!!!
thanks in advance for any replies and advice
