What question about this condition would you like me to answer?
do you think it is something i should worry about
How long has it been present?
6 to 8 months
Any numbness in your legs? ANy bowel or bladder changes?
Any fevers, chills or weight loss?
Have you had any tests like an x ray?
no, after i lost my job i used my savings paid all bills i make just enough money to pay house hold bills. i live 50 miles from town, do you know how much gas cost?
No, I do not know how much gas costs where you liveThe truth is you may have bulging discs causing your problem, but it could be more as well, and you need to have x rays of your spine if your pain has lasted more than 6 months
i have never gone to a dr in my life never been sick
That is good, but I think this warrants a visit
the pain is in the far left lower side of my back
i dont know any one that would see me with out money
I see, you may try to find a free clinic
what could it be
It could be an intervertebral disc herniation or a bone spur or spinal stenosis
a year ago i fell down and landed on a small stump right where the pain is but this pain started 6 months later
and when i stand or walk for a long time i get a sick feeling but again as soon as i sit there is no pain
This sounds like spinal stenosis
is that something i need to take care of right away
It is something you need to have evaluated as soon as you can
thank you for help i will do what i can
