    Herniated discs/chronic back pain

    When I was 19, I slipped down some slick stairs and landed badly on my lower back and right shoulder. I had severe back pain for weeks afterward when lying down but just thought it was probably a bad bruise, possibly a muscle strain/sprain. Fast forward to 6 months later I got checked out by a local clinic doctor because I was having weird numbness, shocking, and stabbing leg pain. They did one X-ray and prescribed a ton of various pain meds including an opioid and said to come back in 6 months.....

    Severe back pain

    I'm 22 years old. I originally hurt my back when I had a fall forward (almost 2 years ago). I never had diagnostics and was given anti-inflammatories and muscle relaxers. I was fine until one year ago. I had pain in my middle back (top of hips to mid sternum). I went to a chiropractor and physical therapy which both helped at first then I hit a wall. I had radiographs and a bone spect and everything is normal. I'm stuck whether I need to keep pushing doctors to find something wrong, or accept....
