I am so happy I have found this website. I am also suffering from slipped disk problem. It all started April 2010 when walking or standing I constantly kept getting pins and needles on my left foot, once that happens my leg starts to hurt and my buttock. Once I sit down somewhere it eventually eases off. My MRI results confirm L4/L5 Central Disk Herniation. My doctor first gave me Ibuprofen then Dicloflex.
I am very concerned for the future as am only 26 years old and married with 2 young kids.
I have been referred by my GP to a Orthopaedic Hospital near Stanmore.
They have told me that it takes about 13 weeks before I can be seen.
What I would like to know is
-What is the next stage at hospital and options?
-Anybody with similar problem?
I would really appreciate with any information posted.
