OK! As most of you are aware, i have 2 prolapsed discs at the base of my spine! This has been an on going problem since as far back as 1998, and has progressed through different stages! Now it has gotten worse, it used to be ok when i was sitting down, and worse on movement, but now its the other way about! I have had some stronger tablets of my gp but they were too strong and didnt suit me! Im frightened of taking too many ibuprofen as they are 400mg in strength, so i tend to keep on the move ,! I have been referred to the specialist at the hospital AGAIN, to see if i need a scan and what can be done! Now my old doctor said, because of them being so close to the spinal cord, that if i could put up with the pain, that that would be the best option, as the op could go either way hmy: :blush2: ! And i have had lumbar punctures which didnt work and were absolute agony! So itll be interesting to see what they say when the appointment comes through!
