Hello everyone I am new to the forum..I have been coming here reading other stuff but this is my first time posting. I apologize if I am doing this wrong I just need some help. I am 20 years old and have DDD, I have had 4 lumbar surgeries including an L4-5 fusion...all before I was even 18. I experience chronic chronic chronic low back pain everyday..the surgery just made everything worse. On top of that I also experience chronic nerve pain in my feet. For the past two years I have had to live with this disgusting pain..I do not get any pain meds because I'm so young doctors just assume I'm looking to get high...I have learned to try and cope with the pain but two days ago I was taking out some heavy trash while cleaning house and was hit with the worst pain I have had since waking up from my spinal fusion. I can barley walk and it feels like there are knifes in my surgery site and now tail bone. The best way to explain the pain is if you have ever gotten a dead leg or charley horse..but in my low back. I have never had pain like this radiating down both legs.
