Thank you for your question.

Have you ever had a MRI of your lower back to have a look at the bones and the discs of the spine?

Please let me know.

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
No I have never had a MRI scan
Expert:  Dr. SH replied 8 months ago.

I think that with the symptoms that you are having you must have a MRI of your lower spine.

I suspect that you could be having a pinched nerve causing your pain which is what I would like to consider and do a MRI for.

This session is open for any further questions that you may have.

If it is a pinched nerve will it wear off in time,or will it get worse,my doctor is not very helpful,I don't think he will SE d me for an MRI,but I have to have a blood test,will this help
Expert:  Dr. SH replied 8 months ago.

It will most likely either get worse or remain the same with time.

It may diminish a bit with time but may not go away completely, not anytime soon.

Blood test will not help.

You will require a MRI of your lower back or a CT scan of your lower back.

I have black between my thighs is that connected,this makes me to embarrassed to go to the doctor,is there something I can get for this,what causes it
Expert:  Dr. SH replied 8 months ago.

The black with between the thigh is not connected at all with the pain.

There is nothing that can be done for the black between the thighs.

Was the MRI scan of your lower back reported as normal?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
I have never had an MRI scan,I can't at the moment,as I said I can't get out,or in the car,so could you tell me what's most likely to be causing the pain
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
also what can I get to ease the pain,is there anything
Expert:  Dr. SH replied 8 months ago.

Sorry I thought you had one done.

If you have an MRI scan done that may show a pinched nerve in your lower back that may be the cause of your pain that you are having.

If that is proven then something can be done about it:

  1. Nerve pain medications like pregabalin or duloxetine
  2. Cortisone injections in the back
  3. Epidural nerve block
  4. Surgery if the above fails
