Hey everyone,

This is my first post here and I thank you in advance for all the help. I have been told (no MRI yet) that I have at least bulging L5 S1 discs. Im currently painfully working up in northern alberta and I will be back home in Vancouver BC in a week so continue the process to find out what exactly is wrong and fix it.
Heres my symptoms: burning in the lower back area on the right side, EXTREME pain right deep in the right hip and a lot in my right glute, very crampy right hamstring, radiating pain down my right leg that goes below my right ankle (this pain is on the outside of my leg/on top and behind but not on the inside), the pain always wakes me up at around 1 or 2 am and I can never seem to get back to sleep because the pain does not go away for the most part, pain while sitting and while standing for too long, hip feels very weak.

I havent had an 8 hour sleep for about 2 months now and im starting to ware down mentally and im just over the whole thing.

Anyone have any ideas or comment by all means please post.

Thank you :)
