Scared, made Dr. Appt., couldn't get in until almost a month, continuing working in pain. Worked on pain pills, muscle relaxers, spasm med. Nothing stopped the pain. Finally Dr No Work until further notice. Everything I did hurt! PT for a week almost Killed me. Pain got worst. Spasms in legs only then, arms and hands hurt so Bad I nite couldn't sleep..Cried a lot. Slept with a sock full of Rice heated in Mircowave, would help relax sometimes..SPASMS are so BAD in Legs have Video them. Dr says have L4,5,6 one ANNULAR TEAR, BULGING DISC and T1 BULGE. Laid around depressed for almost a year Not working, No House work or any daily actives I'm use to do. (I WALKED 5 MILES A DAY BEFORE ACCIDENT).
