Hey guys! I’m so sorry for being so freaking late on a new post but I promise I have a good excuse. So for the past few months, I’ve been experiencing some majorly intense pain in my lower back. It was tolerable for awhile but recently it got to the point where I was in excruciating pain. I couldn’t sit, lay down, and I could hardly walk. I finally went to an urgent care and they said I have a bulging disk. That seemed weird since they barely did any examination so I called my doctors office and scheduled an appointment. They referred me to a specialist and they wanted to do an MRI and another follow up appointment to discuss the imaging. Yesterday was the day I went in to get diagnosed and what they told me honestly shocked me. He told me that I have arthritis in my lower back. It’s causing all of the pain and is progressively getting worse. Now I know what many of you are thinking, a high percentage of the population have arthritis. But I’m eighteen. My doctor said I’m an eighteen year old with a ninety year old back. Someone in a past life must’ve rammed me in the back with a baseball bat or something because this seriously sucks.
