I’m 34 years old and have been suffering from lower back/ left buttock pain for about 10 years. I go to a physiotherapist(ostheopath) every couple of months, and regularly see a strength and condition coach for workout routines which include breathing exercises, core work, as well as lots of flexibility work. The two sports that I love the most are golf and tennis, however, I now keep both at the minimum in order to avoid injury. I have a very stubborn GP who will not give me a referral for an MRI, ad who basically tells me to suck it up. I would say that I have 5 to 6 serious flare up’s per year, which land me in bed for a couple of days and cause me to miss work. I get very’ down’ and depressed when these flare up’s come on, and have a very hard time thinking rationally.
Question to you guys, am I making too big of a deal of my particular situation? I do not mean to be insulting in any way, however, it appears that many people on here have it much worse.
