I'm sure some of you have read my posts from when I first joined. My doctor called last week and told my my xrays show ddd ranging from mild to moderate in my lower back. He also said he would speak to me more about it at my appointment. Now I have been having back pain since I was around 14-15...after my car accident in 2008 its gotten worse over the years. My lower back is horribly stiff. I guess my questions are…is it normal to have mild to moderate ddd at 22 (my birthday is Jan 19th so I just turned 22) and is it normal to cause the pain I am feeling? Could the ddd be what's caused my misaligned pelvis and sciatic pain? So far since December I have been taking neurontin-celebrex-norflex-klonopin- and I have had trial runs with a few others. I started pt but the first session irritated my sciatic so bad my leg went numb and I fell walking up the stairs to my apartment so my Dr said don't go back until I see him. Thanks for reading and id love to hear back from you all.
