I’m 34 and I have been suffering from lower back pain for many years, most recently it’s been keeping me awake at night and much worse in the mornings to the point that just standing up from my bed in the morning is a mission!
I went to a Chiropactor and had X-rays standing, the results where L4 & L5 phase 1 degenerative spondylolisthesis and also found out I have spinal bifida, and an extended spinal curve with a slight twist to my spine. He suggested extensive sports massage that would rack up a high bill!
So went for a second opinion with my GP, they referred me to hospital. I had X-rays laying down and they came back negative for spondylolisthesis, but was told I did have an extended curve.
I researched spondylolisthesis and found that you should have a X-ray standing as it’s easiest to see that way, so I’m unsure of who to believe! The pain is getting unbearable!
Any suggestions on what to do or how to reduce the pain in the morning? I’ve tried sleeping with a pillow between the knees to align my spine while sleeping but it hasn’t helped!
