Hi everyone...Back in the end of november 2008 i severly injured my back at work they emts took me to the hospital the doctors told me my disks l4-l5 was bulging/herniated...and i was going to need therapy and or possibly surgery..But i needed to get in touch with my family doctor so i setup appt with him and when he saw me he said it was nothing just some back spasms!. And almost everyone has bulged disks and just to go on light duty i was kinda shocked due to the pain i had been into and the doctors at the hospital where very firm about me seeing a back specialist

but my family doctor told i was fine so several months go by now i have had dull aches and pains here and there nothing horrid until a week or so ago i was getting this lower back pain and shooting sharp pains in my left leg thigh butt and could not walk stand or move the pain was unbearable i went back to the hospital

they said the same thing to contact a specialist im very scared that because my doctor told me i was fine but i obviously wasnt he didnt even get me a MRI i believe he was neglectful by saying it was just a spasm due to it progressing to what it is now does anyone have any opinions about what step i should take against my doctor or if i can i mean if i had started the therapy back in dec i might not be this bad now but he told me i was fine and your supposed to be able to trust you family doctor

im only 25yrs old and i cant even be mobile or work and my doctor could have said you need therapy but he just dismissed everything!
