I'm a 26 yof, 139 lbs and 5'2. At age 13 I started having mild back pain and I was diagnosed with a very mild case of scoliosis. Over years I have been through a lot physically and have done a lot of manual labor. At age 16 my back pain got worse but I have never been able to slow down. I am 26 now with two children, 5 years old and 10 months. I regularly "pull my back out" (what I call it) 2-3 times a month. I don't have to do much for it to happen. I could just be bent over the tub giving my kids a bath or sweeping the floor. Most of time time I have difficulty lifting my legs to get dressed. If I am presenting with pain I cannot stand up straight. Day one I cannot walk which is unacceptable because I'm a busy mom. I've fallen before because the pain is so bad. It's like a jolt, a shock from the middle of my back into my hips and down my legs. Mostly the right leg takes the most pain. I've been to doctors but I feel like because I'm so young they don't take me seriously. Something is wrong and I can't live like this anymore. I'm really trying to strengthen my core, do yoga here n there, and lose some weight. I'm afraid it is something serious and if it doesn't get better or gets worse I'm afraid I won't be able to live my life the way I want to. Help... Does anyone know what else I can do. Does anyone know if this could be a degenerative disc or only sciatica or both? What else can I do?
