I have been experiencing lower back pains frequently for over a year now especially at my right side, somedays the pain radiates towards my legs and i struggle with mobility for some few minutes (feels heavy), it is more severe in the mornings and few days to, during and few days after my menstrual period. I do not have irregular menstruation. I did a lumbar/sacral xray that says/shows the l4/l5 disc in my spinal cord is displaced, but a 2nd opinion says this isn't the case. I am expected to do a MRI test, i haven't done this yet cause it is quite expensive where i am. I am unsettled as the doctor wont tell me what it is until i have done the scans, i just want to know what i am up against...May i add that about 5years ago i was diagnosed with lumbar scoliosis after severe back pains (it is at a minimal degree as i would have to tell you before you see the curvature), i do not know if the lower back pains are connected to this in anyway, although my doctor says they aren't.. I would appreciate any help i could get in trying to understand whats going on with me. Thank You.
