Hello all, im Tammie and I am 29. I have joined this forum in the hopes that I can try and understand my problems better as my doctor is hopeless.
I have suffered chronic lower back pain since 2011, while pregnant with my now 2 year old. First of all I was told I had Coccydinia(sp?) but the pain progressed and I got sent for xrays. I only heard anything when I callwd my doctors and it was the receptionist who told me I had a fusion on my S1, and that I had been reffered to a trauma and orthopedic team at my local hospital, apparantly the doctor who sent me for xrays was too busy to talk to me. This was 3 months ago.
I then booked an appointment with a different doctor but all he would really do is draw me a diagram and said I had a gap in the bridge bones at the back of my spine, nothing could really be done about it, apart from physio. So he has apparantly reffered me to one. Lately, I have also been getting pain down my legs which seems to come from my lower back.
So, thats me so far. I have posted the diagram in the lower back pain section if anyone would like to take a look, just incase they dont understand where I mean.
Thank you for any help and excuse any spelling mistakes as using my phone and my hands dont work too good at the moment.
