I had a microdiscectomy (sp) Nov 07, and while it helped with greatly with the constant pain I feel very "stiff" I'm only 33 and still not 100% sure how I did it. I was knocked down by our puppy by our pool (while holding our baby) and about three months later noticed I was in terrible pain with the sciatica pain etc.Had an MRI with the herniated disc, and upper buldging disc.
I have noticed with certain weather it's worse or different. I take Soma on the evenings it's really bad but I have been taking Advil or Aleve more and more during the day because it's stiff and sore....
Anyone else. I know I won't ever be the same but wonder if anyone else is having a similar experience.
