i have had a mri and ct scan. basicly still in pain in both sides of back. chest feels like a constant cold or flue. if i extend my lower baqck i get a sharp pain in centre of low back that is worse then the usual lbp. my report was on my lumbar spine and not reported on the thoracic spine. i have lots of symptoms and as of yet no answers. i have urinary problems, feeling as though my feet are cold and wet at times, pain radiating across butt and down back of leg. insomnia going for a second opinion this month as my last consultation was very short and i was told to come back in 3 months thats it. i have worries as regards to taking kapake as it contains par4acetamol and long term use is not good i have been on pain meds for about 7mths. anyway if any of you have a bulging disk in the thoracic spine and you have seen your mri can you compare your image to the on that im suppling a link to. ttp://i607.photobucket.com/albums/tt159/nosleep_2009/lastscanmrispine1-1.jpg. im just looking for some light at the end of this dark tunnel. yours nosleep.
