Re: back Pain

Hi Italianwoman....

So sorry you are in pain. Many on this back forum feels your pain or has felt it. Can be very painful! In order to know if you have a herniated disc, you would need further testing <other than a reg. xray> Most docs will send you for a MRI....that usually tells if you have a herniated disc. BUT sometimes more testing is even needed after a MRI. So, it would be hard for anyone to tell you if you have a herniated disc or what other than a doc. There is many things that can make a back advice is, make another appt. with your doc and tell the doc you are still hurting...chances are, he will order a MRI. If that gets you no where, find another doc. Good luck to you....
