I am a 16 year old male. I was diagnosed with a herniated disk a year ago. I was building a fort in the woods using downed trees and stacking them similar to a log cabin when something gave way in my lower back. Since then I have seen two different physical therapist, I have had an epidural, an injection into the piriformis, saw a neurosurgeon who suggested more Anti-inflammatory drugs said surgery doesn’t work all the time.I have not received any relief from any treatments so far. Its been a year and it is getting worse not better. I recently went sea kayaking and had incredible difficulty and pain sitting in a kayak. I am so worried about school starting in the fall because I can’t sit for long with major pain. I have trouble sleeping because I can’t get comfortable. Help! Anyone out there have any suggestions? After I have been sitting and I get up I am all hunched over for a while until I can straighten out.
