Hi everyone, I wanted some advice please from anyone that can help me.
I'm 25 and have been suffering with chronic back and hip pain for nearly 2 years. I have been to my gp on numerous occasions and have been sent away with different pain killers and none have worked. I have also attended physiotherapy for over a year which has made no improvements and my chiropractor has not been able to help me as when it's really painful I can't even have my back touched without being in agony. I can not sit down for more than 10minutes without having to reposition due to very uncomfortable pain in the thorasic region of my back. After being at work for more than a few hours I feel as though I am about to collapse with pain and on some occasions I struggle to walk and has been getting worse over the years. After much persuasion and pleading with my gp that something was wrong I recently had an MRI scan of my thorasic back and pelvis to which was discovered I have a small disc protrusion l5 s1. I finally found what was the route of my problem but the doctor has said it needs no further action despite all my daily symptoms that are affecting all aspects of my life. If there is any second opinions that my doctor is being silly and this does need looking at can you please point me in the right direction.
