So over the course of 2 weeks 2 days I had back pain getting progressively worse. I began having neck, middle back, and lower back pain to the point I couldn't handle it anymore and went to the hospital. They did an xray on me and discovered that not only did my L5 slip forward and is now on top of my S1, I have degenerative disc disease of the lumbar spine. Which explains the back pain. I'm still in a state of shock. I have a follow up appointment scheduled on Monday. But this was definitely not the kind of news I was hoping to get before Thanksgiving.
