Last november of my.senior year in high school i began to have muscle tightness as i ran cross country in my lower back. This was followed by center spine pain and relief upon bending forward to stretch. After continuing to practice for a couple days i took a month break. My back flared up again during wrestling season but i finisbed through the whole season ignoring the pain like an idiot. Following the season i had left l5 pain on my vertebra some right side and the same chronic and consistant uncomfort in my center of l4-l5. I saw a doctor and got a cat scan and mri. Thr doctor said i had a small bulging disc that should cause NO pain whatsover and i had bone edema on my l5. He made me wear a brace for 20 hours a day for 3 months. Woth two perscriptions of antiinflamatory medicine amd 20 sessions of physical therapy. By july i had a nother mri and was told it didnt get better at all. I had soon after bilateral injections of cortisone and nkvacane but nothing changed. So then i had a bilateral radio-frequency ablation to the l5-s1joint. I was told this would keep me from pain until it healed but i still feel the center pain and left side pain. My muscles are sore around the buttocks area. I see him again soon. My doctor works with EDIT and is a world reknown doctor. I dont know what to do. I am in training and set to go to boot camp in decemberfor tje marine corps. Nothing is helping. Please respond with answers as to why. I have been injured since early november and treated since march.
