Thanks for reading this. I am a little concerned and just wondered if anyone had a simikar story.
It all started in dec. I pulled my back at work and had an mri in feb. The scan said I had a central protrusion at l4/5 but no nerve impingement. Physio was the treatment.
After having this for months things got worse and I had extreme pain in both legs and hips and my back. Even though I was taking 8 tramadol a day the pain was unbearable.
I contacted my doc and told him my symptoms and he reffered me for another scan which I had yesterday.
I aslo have extreme sensitivity on my skin across my lower back and my right leg.....it feels like someone dragging razor blades over my skin with the slightest touch.
Anyway.....I had my scan and struggled to get on and off the bed. and the tech came out after and said your back is a mess I am putting this as urgent and ring your doc on monday.
Can a tech see damage and if so should he be telling me? Also was it because I struggled to get on the bed.
I am very worried now and any help would be gratefully appreciated.
Thanks for your time.
