Hi Papbouv - welcome to the support group -

I'm not sure what all doc's you've seen but it's best that you see a spine specialist - either Orthopedic Spine Specialist or Neurosurgeon Spine Specialist - get all your medical records from being seen on this and take with you.

They will examine you and decide which tests to do (MRI/CT Scan etc) - especially if it's been more than a year since you've had one. This way they can see what's going on with you back as you do have spine history. Once they examine you they can offer the best treatment plan.

please keep us posted what you find out~~
