New here, I am 19 and have been battling a bad back since April.
I went to the doctors and they wouldn't even refer me to an mri, just dosed me up on loads of meds, and I think I have probably taken everything in the book lol and nothing works. So I got an MRI scan done privately.
Also had physio and seen a chiropractor.
I know you guys aren't doctors on here, I know I have a herniated disc and another ruptured ? I just got referred to the assessment clinic and the doctors forgot to send on my scans, so they said its either surgery or spinal injections. They didn't actually specifically say to me what was going on, its all been a nightmare.
What's the best option considering my age? Spinal injections or surgery? As that's what they've offered me
This is very rare or someone my age so I'm told and there is no help lol the nhs is horrific
I can't do anything, I can't go to anything because I can barely walk the pain is that excruciating! And being 19 and having this pain is really annoying! And for those people with the sciatic pain- it ruins your life
