Hi, I had a spinal injury 2 years ago. It

Hi, I had a spinal injury 2 years ago. It was an anvulsion fracture in the lumbar spine. That’s what I was told when I went to the ER. But when I went to a specialist he said I was completely fine no injury whatsoever and shoed me out. Now it’s two years later, my lower back has not stopped hurting since. I can not bend over properly, my legs go numb, I get frequent headaches, and shooting pain in both legs when sitting. I got the injury from a horseback riding accident. I can’t even function properly at this point. There is not point in time when my lower back does not hurt really badly. I am at a loss. I went back to the er they said I have the same injury, asked why I didn’t go to the specialist, then sent me back to him again. And this time he didn’t even see me. He came out to the waiting room and told me I’m fine and go home. Now I don’t know what to do.

I am a 61-year-old female. I have some osteoporosis. I had a blocked bile duct and had an ERCP two weeks ago. Very painful stomach afterwards. Those pains have subsided. I still have a bile duct stent in for another month. Post-procedure I see that I am suffering from gradual onset mid-back pain after an eight-hour work day, and this pain is accompanied by breathlessness. My heart is fine. I m on a very low-fat diet because of two past occurrences of ideopathic acute pancreatitis complicated by sphincter of oddi disorder. I weigh 124 pounds at 5 3 . My back is weak and I sleep comfortably on an adjustable bed. I told the hospital to be careful with me, but the anesthetic knocks you out and they roll you into position. They really did a number on my spine. It s hard for me to breath with my spine hurting this way by the end of the day. Help!
