So i've always struggled with lower back pain. I would get stiffness and pain from time to time when I was younger but blamed it on poor posture. I am now 23 years old and for the past two or three months have been suffering from horrible lower back pain that radiates down to my hips and my legs. My legs will also get tingly for nor reason and for awhile i thought i had bad circulation or something. I have been struggling with mobility as well. I get tired so easily and walking is difficult at times because my legs will get sore and heavy. I haven't been able to be as active as I normally would like to be and it's been getting in the way of day to day life. My neurologist said my MRI scans are normal but as I type this, my lower back is in severe pain and I can't move with pain shooting. I dont know what to do! I just want some relief and my doctor keeps sending me to get bloodwork and tests done only for them to come back normal. Im also tired of her using my weight as a reason. All my life I have stayed with the same weight range (medical history will prove it) and it hasnt been issue. Nonetheless, i've taken it upon myself to make weight-loss and being active a priority but I literally cant move on most days.
i dont know how else to advocate for myself
