I was first diagnosed with slipped disc 4 years ago. L3, L4 and L5.
You can check out my MRI scan here: http://ohpinkybrain.files.wordpress.com/2014/02/197832_10150165623146894_6959273_n.jpg?w=620
4 years ago, the pain was really bad. I couldn't sleep or do anything at all. The doc gave me plenty of meds and physiotherapy to deal with. The pain subsided but the light soreness was still there.
I stopped physiotherapy because it was getting to expensive to go to (after few mths). My insurance does not cover me for slipped disc
I did most of my stretches and exercises at home.
I went on like that for a few years. Sometimes, I wanted to give up. I also tried many remedies and seen many doctors.
I tried it all but nothing worked! The pain extended to my toe! I lived in agony basically.
4 years later, I've decided may be it is time to go for a surgery. Or maybe I shouldnt? Any advice?
