I have low back pain on the right side, and is mostly localized to the disc area. There is very mild sciatic pain. I recall when the pain started. I twisted my back too much while trying to get out when stuck in snow.
There was a mild pain in the back since then. It became much worse recently when I did some stretches. The pain is still localized to the back/hip area.
I will be getting an MRI in another month, so waiting for that to get an accurate diagnosis.
Is there anyone in the forum who injured their back from twisting too much? What was the diagnosis in your case? Was it a herniation or a disc tear.
I read somewhere that disc tears usually heal(mostly) within 8-16 months. I am hoping mine is a tear that can be healed. :?
