spondylosis - L5....really need advice, 25 and am going crazy :-/
Lying awake at approx 2am searching and hunting down info and well panicking at the same time! I am 25 and very active, play netball, in the TA, run, rockclimb anything and everything really, however at the moment I am suffering badly with back pain.
I spent 6 months of paying privately for physio to be told something different each time, I finally paid for MRI scans which confirmed I had spondylosis at the lumber part of my spine. Not sure if I was born with it or it occurred when I fell out of a tree when I was younger and landed on my coxyx from a great height!
So anyway I finally went to my doc and got referred to the physio (appt today) and luckily because I had my scans etc I didn't get the well we will try physio and see how u get on because I have been doing exercises for 6 months and still in pain.
My case is being taken to a conference where other physio's and surgeons will decide what to do with me, I am panicking because I want to know the options available and will it ever be ficed??!! I find out in 2 weeks and would love to hear from anyone who has had surgery etc?
I played netball tonight because I havnt trained in months and I'm desperate to train and now I'm currently in agony (have totally aggravated it but just give up)
My coxyx is sore and my Glutes are twitching like which makes me think that maybe the spondylosis has been there for yrs and isn't causing me probs but it's actually my coxyx? I get weird twingings in my sacrum area when I walk but not down my legs! Argh losing faith and don't know what to do .
Please if anyone is experiencing the same I would love to hear how ur coping or why they have done in terms of solving the problem.
Many thanks x
