24 too young to be hurting
24 yr old male
healthy/ 2-3 years now ive had nagging neck/low back pain . Physio/chiro/massage all helps but temperary relief. left leg goes slightly numb tight sometimes as with the left arm recently. Upper back muscles are always tight. I unfortunatley have a job that is long hours and mostly sitting all day on the computer or driving. I put 33000 km on my car last year . MRI of neck showed minor buldge at c6-c7 back in october 2012. Lower back didnt show anything .
My upper back and neck is always warm/tight. I just cant seem to shake it off my family doctor does next to nothing just offers me muscle relaxants and anti-inflammatories. Im having a nerve conduction test in june.
I use to be active in the gym/ happy/ my job is treating me well and i have good family and support but the pain is becoming brutal.
Physio thinks i have 10 years until i need injections or further intervention. Anyone here have any ideas or tests i should be chasing. I live in canada and everything takes forever. I waited almost a year for the mri
Last summer i had 9 days off in a row and i found by the end of my vacation my neck was loose and wasnt sore. Ive always wondered if my stupid job/stress is just causing all these symptoms
