Hello. I’m 19 years and suffer from a herniated disc, L4 to L5. I need help because im in extreme pain everyday from the sciatic nerve much more than the back. Not everyday is terrable but somedays I literally can’t walk without my cane, and PT isn't working . I think do to my age, no one takes me seriously. Even the doctors I've seen make me feel like im wasting their time, they wont even give me cortisone injections. My MRI shows that the herniation isn't very severe, but I literaly cannot even describe the pain into words. Its been about 8 months now and its getting worse by the day. It is taking over my life and I can feel myself going into depression. I just need some advice from someone who actually can relate to what i am going through. I feel like everone around me thinks I’m overplaying it but they have absolutley no idea what it’s like. Someone please help me.
