  • hey im a 22 year old who had very bad lower back pain for 4 months that was not getting better.
    I did everything from therapists to all kinds of stretches and pain killers. I Had a MRI and had to disc bulges,
    What saved me from my pain was a book that i read. It is called Healing Back Pain by doctor Sarno. it cost me 15 bucks and it saved my life from the pain i was in. Read it and you will get 100% relief.

    Welcome to Spine-Health

    It would be very helpful if you could provide us with more details. Here are some questions that you
    should answer:
    • - When did this first start?- Was it the result of an accident or trauma?- What doctors have you seen?- What Conservative treatments have you had? Which ones?- What diagnostic tests have you had? And their results- What medications are you currently using?- Has surgery been discussed as an option?- What is your doctor’s action plan for treating you?

    Providing answers to questions like this will give the member community here a better understanding
    of your situation and make it easier to respond.

  • Hello Deina,
    The other respondents have told you already, you do need to seek medical advice soonest, ultimately you will need an MRI scan to understand you issue but it sounds very much like a prolapsed disc. I had one earlier this year, awful pain and life changing in terms of what you can do. I'm NOT diagnosing you hence you need to seek advice soonest for your own healtth.

    My advice and your body will be telling you this anyway, but do not lift anything at all or bend or lean unless it is 100 unavoidable. The reason being is that if you do have a prolapsed disc then you might well make it worse and you don't want that. After an MRI you will then receive choices, you can of course, take the non-surgical approach, I did this 10 years ago and it took 4 years to recover fully. After my recent prolapse I went for surgery within weeks and it has taken a few months afterwards to recover.

    Seek medical help and look after yourself.
