So.. I have had some really bad back pain for most of my life, drs at our last post said that it was Bursitis in both of my hips, which would cause my back problems. Well back in January of this year I got x-rays done of my hips and spine and 2 weeks ago they finally called me in to review them. Okay.. here is what the dr 2 weeks ago told me. She said " When your mom was pregnant with you your body started forming Spina Bifida, but then it healed itself before you were born so now you just 1 minor defect in your lower spine, and thats what hurts. " Okay.. I was okay with that. Thankful that I didnt acctually have any form of Spina Bifida. Fast forward 2 weeks (yesterday) I went in because they wanted me to start getting injections o meds into my back to help with the pain.. Okay i was good with that... then the dr that I saw yesterday showed me my x-rays (the last dr did not she just told me what she was told ) and he said that the last dr wqas wrong I DO infact have Spina Bifida Occulta, and instead of 1 defect, I have 3!! and thats what hurts so bad.. DUH!
Idk if I should be worried or anything Like.. IDK how i should feel.. I mean I am super thankful that I dont have a more severe type. But i mean, I was told one thing and now it turns out that I was basically lied to and that my back is deformed.. and It was never found when i was a child. I just had this thrown at me at 23. :( How would yall feel???
Sorry for it being so long, i just dont how I should feel right now. Thanks for listening ladies. Any advice is always welcome. :)
