I have a bad back and experienced a serious back spasm almost a year ago. I was given cortisone, pain relievers and anti-inflammatory medications. I was also given a list of back exercises to do at home every day.
I'm now off the medications and the severe back pain is gone. But I still have symptoms in my leg -- pain that is on and off, as well as numbness and pins and needles.
I feel like my therapeutic treatment wasn't good enough. I should have gotten all better by now.
