Its my 7th year I'm now 29 I started my misery 2008 it was the first job I did and it was really tough and hard job and all about carrying heavy stuff that caused me pain but was tolerable... After working 3 months at this time I started to feel many syndromes
_lower back pain_legs pain_ bladder problems and difficulties in urination and controlling_ legs numbness and not balanced
After that I made many Mri without showing any defects all the report and results are perfect but I'm now dying and always in a massive pain and Don know why!!
All doctors just guessing and just giving me instructions and painkillers but to no avail... Now I can't walk probably and the pain changed me day by day I feel useless and my patient is about to ran out and think sooner will give up
I came here to seek help or any advice from anyone who had the similar condition

    Have you had other testing besides MRI?
    Curious about what kind of doctors you have seen or are seeing?
    A spine specialist? Pain management doctor?

    Please read my medical history at: Medical History

  • The only other procedures I can think of are a discogram, ct myelogram, and EMG. In cases like mine where the hardware can sometimes obscure MRI's, ct myelogram can be more useful. It was used to confirm nerve compression before I had a microdiscectomy.
