  • Lol, no. Not at all. However if your lower back pain is being caused by mis-firing nerves or another brain-impulse related issue, the natural next step would be to see a neurologist. If your doctor thought it was all in your head, he would be sending you to a psychiatrist.

  • No, they are trained for this issue as well as neurosurgeons and orthopedic doctors.. Neurologist deal with everything from seizures to nerve damage all along the spine...

  • a neurologist deals with things like nerves, muscles, and spinal cord. If your pain is a neurological one, then it makes sense.

  • They will probably take a look at your spine to see if anything is being pinched in there . . . . it is good you are going.
