I was in a terrible car accident at age 15 where I was ejected from the car breaking every bone in my body but my back neck and right arm. I am now 22 and am having some problems with my lower back. The doctor said it was a bulging disc, now when my back starts hurting I can't move my left leg. What could be wrong, what may be causing it and how could I treat it???

Hi Presley_sc - welcome to the support group -

make sure you are seeing the right kind of doctor - either a Orthopedic Spine Specialist or Neurosurgeon Spine Specialist - they may order current MRI/CT Scan so they can see what's going on. You can also see a PHYSIATRIST Pain Management specialist

They go deeper into pain management control based on patients needs. they can also examine you, request MRI/CT Scans and can refer you to a spine specialist as they work with several that are really great spine specialist.

Only the Spine Specialist and/or Pain Management Specialist can answer you questions once they have examined you.

Please let us know what you find out~~
