at this point I’m getting a little desperate. It’s now mid April of 2018 and last October I injured my low back in the seated leg press. Saw the doctor and they treated me for a sprained back until I couldn’t take the pain and got an MRI. Found out the end of December I had a “slight bulge” my doctor recommended the epidural shots if I didn’t get better within a month but I said no and finally started doing physical therapy again March 1st. Since then I’ve had ups and downs but mostly downs. I can’t sit down for more than 30 minutes or drive in the car without pain, I’m having shooting pains again in my butt and down my leg. I’m 21 5’2 118 lbs. I have been lifting weights for the last few years and was a runner in high school and never had problems till the leg press incident last October. I’m just tired and I was this pain to stop. My boyfriend and I can barely go out to eat or see a movie or do a lot of things because of my pain.. does it ever get better? I feel like I’ve lost myself because I can’t be active or do workout classes with my friends. I want to know how I can heal for good.
