Im new to the board.Seems like a real tight knit coumunity here.After 1 Xray, My MD says I have spondololisthesis.Iwent to PT for 4 weeks and was discharged because I wasnt responding to treatment and my leg and hip pain was gettin worse.My therapist thinks I have a bulging disc.My MD wont do an MRI.He say that for an ortho or neuro man to do.It looks like it may be another month or so before I can see a specialist.Im really worried about nerve damagethat could be happening.Ive had pain for about 7 months,
constant pain for 3 of the 7.Does anyone know how long the siatic nerve can take this beating before permenate
damage is done?I dont believe my MD is taking my pain seriously.Sitting is the only relief I get.Does that give the nerve a break?Sorry if Im rambling,I, like alot of you are just so frustrated with the lack of concern by so called health professionals.
Any info would be appreciated.
Im prayin for all you guys and gals.
Thanks ,John K
