Hi, thanks for getting in touch. I'm sorry to hear about what's gone on that sounds difficult for sure. It is rare for this to be happening so often and you really do need a referral to see a spinal surgeon, not necessarily for an operation but at least to go through your MRI/possibly repeat it and look for changes as well as to explain to you why it's happening and also whether there are any procedures that can be done to limit it. Usually they'll start with explaining what movements you should avoid and some exercise/physiotherapy to see if that helps and the rest depends on the specifics of the MRI scan really.
I certainly think seeing a spinal surgeon will be the first best step.
Yes that's right, frankly they should have done it already but if you just tell them what you've told me they'll get you referred and you'll see the specialist soon after.
I understand that and it's not life threatening or anything but you do deserve to be comfortable and able to get on with your life so please do speak to them. You're so welcome! I'm glad I could help if a little. Do come back if you've any questions in the future and all the very best :)
Anytime, take care.
