I have been suffering from severe back pain for over a year one had a MRI scan the consultant who did my scan told me I have two slipped disc which trapped a nerve so refer me to the spinal hospital for more investigations. After waiting for nearly 3 months for an appointment to see the spinal consultant I am told that there is nothing wrong with me. I have severe back pain, pins and needles numbness and loss of feelings in my leg and bum and feet. I sometimes fall over so now walk with a stick and getting out of bed is pure agony because my back seize up. I am scared and very worried. The specialist makes me feel it’s all in my head. I can’t do house work, sit or stand for long, I have no social life. I have become literally house bound and very depress. Can this be in my head?
