So about 10 months ago I was ran over by a truck, not by the tires but by the undercarriage. I was bent in such a way that was far beyond my flexibility and suffered massive back pain for a few weeks and could barely walk during that time. I knew the injury was to my back but I also experienced a severe tingling pain in my upper legs. I never went to the doctor due to a lack of insurance, but I did some research and all signs pointed pretty clearly to a herniated disc. Since that time I have healed considerably, but far from completely. I still have a bulge in my lower/mid back, it still causes me a lot of grief any time I do any physical activity/labor, and I still experience very mild tingling/numbness in my upper right leg only. I would love to go to a doctor and have it checked out, but I really can't afford it. My biggest concern is that it will grow worse again with time if left untreated. I have read that they heal on their own in 1 to 6 months, but that time came and went and the healing progress I made seems to have stopped. Can anyone advise me on what to do in this situation?
