I am 27. For the last 3 years I have had a terrible pain in my lower back through the back side of my right leg down to my ankle. This last year I was finally in a place were I could get it taken care of and so far have uncovered nothing except I am always in pain and it brings me to my knees in agony. I went to physical therapy for 6 weeks and they used an ultrasound machine but it wouldn't stop from being inflamed all the time. It continued through my last therapy session.
Wait, wait, wait. Let us start at the beginning. My first son was a very intensive labor and I was in the hospital for 60 hours before he was born. I had severe back labor and he came out looking at the world. From that day on I had this pain even through my second child. It is usually about a 2 but at least 3 to 4 days out of the week on a scale of 1-10 it is 7 to 8.
Today I have reached a stalling point as the family practitioner we see use to specialize in the spine. I asked for an MRI and to be sure he had me see him before going to get an MRI. He felt bulging and it was sore where he touched. He agreed completely and sent me in. I had the MRI today and a nurse practitioner called me back and said everything was normal. I don't want anything to be wrong but I don't want to be in pain anymore. It hurt so bad having to lay in the MRI like shooting pains before it started just from the position. It has been a pretty consistent 7 all day. I have learned to live with it but it has made me a very short tempered person. Not angry just don't want to deal.
I want to feel better for my kids, my husband, and my dance career. I don't stop I go right through it but I want to feel normal again
