Just wanted to state that I am 21 years old and have had lower and upper back pain along with trapped sciatic nerve which had left me bed bound for many months at a time and stopped me from doing any physical activity and physiotherapy has not helped one bit. Ive had an MRI Scan however my first GP had said I had L5-S1 disc damage, he suggested me surgery at 18 years old which would have left me wheel-chair bound, as the Dr stated it may be 50% successful, yet I ignored surgery because it was very risky and I was very young. I had another doctors consultation three years later and the Dr told me I had T10-T11 protruding disc and some facetal damage and weakened ligaments and tendons, so the previous GP Dr not only gave me misinformation but did not read my MRI Report to me accurately.
Was anybody mislead by their doctors or practices like I have in the past 5-7 years, if so what help did you seek? I am changing my GP so I can book in to see a chiropractor and I feel my back pain has increased as a result of long-term weight gain, and would like to have another X-ray and an MRI Scan.
Does anybody know any solutions to this, if so please do post your issues or interests on this topic and how you kept it at bay, etc and IF you did have back pain, how did it stop you from day to day activities, just wanted opinions and facts around these topics of issue. Thank you!
