I have had back problems off and on since High School Football that give me bouts of back spasms that have wiped me out for a day or two here and there. But this time it has been much worse and more enduring. I have had intense pain for over two weeks that is pretty debilitating. I’m missing work and falling behind on important projects. I’m missing out on time with the kids and basically everything else just trying to cope with the pain. CT scan says the problem is probably that my disc between my S1 and L5 vertebrae has been flattened out, bone spurs may have developed, and nerves seem to be pinched. Two doctors have told me to stop playing sports. To me, this would be devastating. An MRI is the next step, as well as rest and trying to bring down the swelling.
Please join me in praying for healing and pain relief.
