I am seeking opinions so anything will help me out, thank you to whomever helps...
I am 6'7" 220lbs 24yrs old, yes I'm tall which could be the reason.
I have been dealing with Chronic Back Pain for the past 12 years now... I gave up my career recently last year (2014) when my back went out... I was getting a gallon of milk out of my fridge and all of a sudden my whole back gave out, I dropped the milk and the pain was terrible and I have a high pain tolerance level. I was breathing like a panting dog trying to gasp for air but the more I breathed in the worse my back felt.
A few days went by, I woke up to my whole body from head to toe complete body numbness and tingly sensation which lasted over 30 plus days... After the numbness went away that month I noticed a VERY sharp pain in my right buttocks and when I sit down for a bit then get back up, the pain shoots down to my feet and it hurts so bad.
I got a MRI done and my Mid-Thoracic T8 has a bulging disc and T6-T8 has slight Scoliosis .
My Neurologist is wanting to send me to Pain Management and get Epidural Shots.
I want to know what caused all of this all at the same time, no doctors can tell me in a way I can understand.
Surgery is the LAST RESORT for me.
Thanks you for ANY HELP, I thank you truly,
