I am 21 years old and female. I have a career as a client support assistant for an IT company and I absolutely love my job. I couldn't ask for a more under standing company either. The only problem is I have a prolapse disc between L5-S1 so really low down on my back. I take a ridiculous amount of medication each day- around 30 pills at minimum! I struggle with migraines as well you see. Not only that but they don't really do much I still end up going back to the doctors each month complaining of further pain in other parts of my body.... I'm sure they think I'm lying! I'm stuck with what to do.... I absolutely love my job but I end up so tired at the end of the day I'm in bed by the time I get home! That's no way to live life. I end up with depression so much and you know every dr says do excercise... Well I have about 20 stretches and things I do religiously on a daily basis yet I still end up in spasms and agonising pain. I have had injections and they ended up worse due to the bruising that was caused in the process. I've lost feeling down my legs and have pins and needles pretty constantly now. I'm pretty sure at 21 you are supposed to go out and enjoy your life and there's me almost wishing mine away. Any advice or guidance, even questions I can ask my dr or consultant would be greatly appreciated.
