23 and IN PAIN
I'm 23, male, fit but have had lower back pain for coming on a year.
After scans, a 5cm by 3.6cm by 4.4cm Tarlov Cyst was found in my sacrum. After specialist appointments with Neurosurgeons I was advised this was not causing the pain. MRI Scan showed slight degeneration of disc at L4 and I have had conflicting comments that maybe this could be causing pain. Reluctant to have the investigation tests to see if this is the case and then surgery of spinal fusion or disc replacement.
Four months off work doing Iyengar yoga and exercise has helped alot however back at work now full-time sitting all day and pain levels creeping up and up. On Tramadol medication, Osteopath leaves me in alot of pain for days after.
Been reading your The Body in Action book and this has lead me to your website. Unfortunately based in Brisbane so cant visit you.
Pain is in whole trunk from buttocks to upper spine, muscles feel like they are in spasm and sitting is the thing that triggers the pain definitely. No pain in legs or pins and needles. Swimming helps, time poor and pain is tiring.
Any ideas please......................
Ps is it ok to put the back block under my sacrum with this cyst do you think?
