i am a 22 yr old female. i had surgery in july to repair a herniated disc. i begged my doctor to start pt and give me meds for the pain, but he never does. He claims that my pain isnt that bad . Trust me, its excruciating. Ive been dealing with this for 8 months and i dont know what to do. my recent mri showed that my l4 and 5 are buldging . i fall alot due to pain. sometimes my leg flat out stops working and causes me to fall, sometimes i feel like im being electrocuted. this lasts for maybe five minutes or so, but it seems forever. also,for those few minutes, my hearing and vision are effected.ive been doing min stretching and walking, i use ice and heat, drink lots of water, and elevate my legs. i dont know what else to do. i mean, im unable to put my own shoes on or get in/out of the tub without assistance. The doctors dont do anything here. I know this isnt right! please help.
