I have scoliosis and kyphosis which the Dr. Said it shouldn't cause pain. (Yeah right) I've been dealing with low back pain and sciatica for about 8 years now and I'm only 26. I've done pt, chiro, and injections but just decided to stop spending money on things that weren't helping and deal with it. Some days its terrible and others I'm fine. Things changed.
About 2 months ago my lower back pain really increased and was at its worse when sitting. Then one day I went to pick up a piece of paper and I got zinged across my back. I could barely walk it hurt so bad. The next day when I woke up the pain was surprisingly better so I figured it was muscle. Then a fee days later it got bad.... The butt cheek became numb, my thigh, heel, and down to my little toe. Pain was unbareable especially when sitting. Went to Dr. And he shrugged it off and loaded me with muscle relaxers, steroids, and pain killers. The steroids helped a lot with the pain. I only have pain here and there but don't have to take anything for it. BUT the numbness is still there. Its improved but is still constantly there. I get spasms along with numbness, tingling, and cold feeling to my foot. Went to the Dr. Again and by this time my foot has been numb for around 3weeks now. My Dr. Wasn't too concerned since the pain has improved. The only test he did wax had me walk on the balls of me feet which I passed. I did fail the straight leg test horrendously though.
So is it good the pain has improved or is bad since I'm still numb?
