New here so just wanted to say hi and learn and share.
I've been dealing with back pain for almost 20 years. Always something. 2 Month ago pain got worse, then pain started shooting down my leg. Dr visits, ER visit, more Dr visits, MRI, and now I know. Severe herniated disk at L5-S1. Getting a shot tomorrow (not my first rodeo with those either). Will be considering surgery. Havent had surgery yet but as i've had problems with the same disk over many years......yada yada yada.
Anyway I joined here more for the moral support and comradery of people with the same experience.
