Hi, I have been having physiotherapy since March with little relief. I am now taking amitryptyline & naproxen for pain relief. Following an MRI scan 2 weeks ago I discovered I have a large prolapsed disc at L4\L5 with L5 neural compression (see profile photo).
I have severe leg pain which results in not being able to walk more than a few hundred metres some days I feel it's ruining my life!
I am seeing a Spinal Specialist at my local NHS hospital next week. Does anyone have any experiences of the treatment options available??? http://www.spine-health.com/conditions/herniated-disc/lumbar-herniated-disc
