Hi everyone, for a little under a year I have suffered from lower back pain, it's excruciating at times and limits my range of movement! Recently the pain has become quite severe and radiates down my glute/leg/ankle (predominantly my left side) and I have tingling sensations in my leg too mainly my calf. I have visited a physiotherapist on five occasions who worked on my sacrilliac joint (he told me I had problems with it and that is what was causing the pain) the sessions however made my pain worse and I ended up in unbearable agony! I visited my go who upon examining me sent me for an MRI scan.
I had the scan today after a short notice phone call from the department with a cancellation appointment available for me to have it done sooner. The only thing is I had taken all of my meds for the inflammation and pain and my back wasn't hurting as much... Will this make a difference to the findings on the scan and does anybody have any ideas on what this could be.?
