I have been diagnosed with two bulding discs in my lower back. This was confirmed by an MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imagery) I think I have that correct. I was then sent to a Neurologist who asked me why my General Practioner sent me???? He said he would not recommend any surgery, wrote me out a prescription for Ibuprophen and Butalbital. Since then I feel my back has gotten worse. I have involuntary twitching of my foot when I sit in my recliner at night and some numbness going down the side of my right leg. I feel some relief from pressing on the right side of my vertebrae with my knuckle for a while.....like acupressure I guess....LOL. I am very limited to what I can do and for how long as the longer I do things on my feet the more it hurts till I just have to give up and sit down or lay down. Last night after doing very, very light housework I went to bed at 8:30PM just to get some relief from the pain. My quesion is will these discs continue to feel worse and should I revisit the issue with my GP and ask for further help or what? Am I just stuck with feeling this way and its limitations or is there something more that can help me????
