Should I go to the doctor?

edited 02/18/2015 - 9:54 PM in Chronic Pain
So 7 years ago, when I was 10, I was doing gymnastics and I did a cartwheel wrong and heard a loud, booming, pop and I was unable to move I had to go home. Since then whenever doing something where I would have to put pressure on my back, it would hurt horribly and the intense pain will linger for days. I also have a constant and dull back pain all the time.

Could this be an overarching condition or a weakness from that untreated trauma?

  • Honestly, most of us here have been seeing MULTIPLE Dr's trying to fix the problems. If it's not bad enough that you don't want to go, don't. However it seems to take quite a while to get any definitive answers or diagnoses on back pain so the sooner you go in the sooner you can get help, and hopefully prevent it from getting worse .
