So for the last two and a half months, I've had constant pain in my lower back in one very specific spot. It just happened one day without warning, I didn't tweak it or anything that I know of, but I could barely walk for an entire week. Although my mobility improved and the pain lessened to a more tolerable level, it's still there.
The doctor sent me for xrays, and this is what they came back with:
Mild degeneration sacrococcygeal junction.
Mild angulation sacrococcygeal junction, a normal variant.
Minimal disc space narrowing L5-S1.
He told me these results are normal and he doesn't know why I'm having this pain and to keep going to physio. That was pretty much his care factor, and then to make it worse, he threw in the classic "well you're young, so...."
I'm 29 years old, and I have Ehlers Danlos Syndrome (Hypermobility), so I'm used to dealing with chronic pain. But this is something different entirely, and it's actually limiting what I can do even worse than I was before. Anytime I tilt my pelvis at all, it hurts. I looked up all of the things in my xrays, and to me it feels like my pain is located where the L5-S1 is. But my doctor's exact words were, this is nothing and if you were to take ten people off the street at least one in ten would have this same problem.
Can anyone give me some advice on this? I'm already doing light pilates and yoga strength every day for my EDS, so I don't know what else I can do. Should I just continue to live with the pain and accept that I can barely do anything anymore? Or should I keep going back to doctors to be told I'm too young to have back problems.
I feel really defeated, so anything would be helpful right now.
