HI my name is Megan. To give you a bit of history, i am 27 years ols (too young for this). I fell on a patch of ice at work on April Fools Day of this year. Been in pain ever since. After a month the Doc did X-rays and an MRI, showed a transitional L5, mild bulge at L5, and an angular tear. I had another MRI on my left hip (pain is in the laft buttock and down my leg), that one showed nothing wrong. 3 months of PT and accupuncture haven't helped.
Because I am still working full time WCB is doing nothing for me, PT has given up on me, and my Doc is just giving me RX's. I just started Tridural 6 days ago. My doc says that since my MRI shows nothing wrong he can't do anything for me.
I am so frustrated with how this affected my life. My boyfriend of 2 years left me, I am raising 2 kids by myself, and trying to work full time. I
am having a really hard time dealing with this.
Thanks for letting me vent, and for posting all your experiences, I've been reading them for awhile and they have helped a lot.
