Hello, it's my first post even though I have read the boards for a couple of month. I just wanted some advice really as I'm not sure if the Dr are just lazy or are in fact correct.
Background: I've had back problems in the past were I had Physio and everything was better after the excises, about weeks ago roughly, I started to have back pain and gradual increasing pain in my back, legs, feet, knees, arms, hands and the back of my neck which caused headaches occasionally, with this, I also have weakness in my legs, and arms/hands. difficulty walking or standing or holding for instance a cup of tea. I have had a MRI on my Lumbar Sacral, which found a minor bulged disc with no nerve impingement at L5/S1. And I went to the Dr regarding these results and they said it's great and what I need to do is excises from my time at Physio and may take a few months to subside.
What I would like to know if anyone has any experience, is this correct? was my MRI only done on lower spine and they are basing their opinion on a incomplete picture? I have also recent had bloods taken but no results as yet, the Dr I've talked to about the results is different to the one who ordered a MRI and Bloods.
Just feel like she Lectured me on excising but wasn't listening or interested in further investigating my problem. Because if their is no impingement like the MRI says, how is it effecting my nerves?
Sorry for the long first post, just worried.
Thank you for any help or advice, I appreciate it a lot.
