I had an mri done and it showed no disc bulging or disc degenration. At that time I was having severe lower back pain although I could still bend and flex normally as well as numbness in left leg and diahrhea. The back doctor gave me a medidose pack and pain relievers and after I started taking those I started to have weak stream and the feeling of blue balls( dont know what else to call it) at my symphosis pubis but my last was still loose but not just mostly water like the last couple of weeks.
I still felt numbness in the left leg although it was not as bad as before and even started going to a chiropractor to get adjustments just in case. After the first few adjustments my leg numbness has dispersed. I am still curently having flare ups at my lower back but that comes from sitting for short periods of time. Rest usually does the back good (but tight and I need to stretch it out) but leaves my bladder feeling like what I mentioned before.
I mean it sounds like severe nerve damge to be having bladder and bowel problems. I will say I have no paing when I am walking or even running ( testing waters with the running)
This is killing me not knowing what I am looking at. The back doctor said there is no way you could sprain your back. Is that true? And if it is not could I have strained my back so bad to have caused these symptoms?
I know something like this takes time to heal. Like months to heal. But it is scaring me not knowing what I am going through.
