Hi I'm Chris, I'm a 22 year old who's been having back problems sence june 3rd of this year, I've been to 2 ER's and seen 5 (ER docs included) it's taken Me untill october to have xray's and an mri done, which shows that My L4-L5 disk is bulgeing at 4mm an My L5-S1 is bulging at 11mm to the left, pushing on some nerves, My primary doctor released Me on the 30th for the 2nd time after stating there's nothing else medicaly he can do, I've been through PT for about 3 months, My PT has told Me I've lost a great deal of mobility, but thankfuly have gotten alittle of it back. I found this site while surfing and wanted to join, hoping that someone might be able to offer some advice on what I should do, out of the 6 months I've been dealing with this My Doctor has refused to give Me medication for a good 80% of the time I was seeing him and was hoping to find out what My options are.... I'm honestly scared about whats going on with My life at the moment, The ER Doctor I seen the other night sat down and showed Me the MRI results and said that I should look for a new primary care doctor and sit down with a surgoun to discuss My options, (ended up in er because I got a tingle down My right leg and within about 1 1/2 minuts My foot was dead a sleep and it scared Me) so it's nice to meet everyone and I look forward to having some good conversations, Thank you
