Well I have and MRI of both my brain and my lumbar (lower) back this Saturday. I have had almost all of those tests and MRI's on the rest of my back and I have had a bone scan of my whole body so I donít know what to expect. My blood pressure and pulse is the same really high and then all of a sudden it is really low. My pain Dr. thinks it is something neurological and doesnít have anything to do with my back injury from dance (I have and irregularity in my mid back and have compression fractures in my lower back). I am also young I am only 17 and it is getting worst every day. I just started taking Lyrica 75mg twice a day for my nerves because I have had numbness, tingling, and then sharp shooting pain in my legs. Let me know what is going on I would like to know and I will try to keep you posted maybe It could help both of us.

Hope you find good news and end up getting better.

if i herniated a disc wouldnt i have severe back pain? i have minor back pain at times but not that bad nothing i wouldve even seen a doctor for unless i had all the other symptoms...i hurt my back3 weeks before i got any of these symptoms if hurt when it fisrt happened but the pain subsided over time what would you think this is inmy case at my age....your honest opion and the way i hurt my back? alot of people have had similar things happen with no problems...why me.....what couldve happened every so often i have a slight pain the back of my head near my kneck not bad though its all the other symptoms that work on me....i also get pains all over my body i know for example if u hurt you upper back u might get pain in the hands arms wrists which i do at times not bad though but i get pains all over my body my legs feet everythingmy whole spinal cord cant be screwed up especially from that can it? i dont know if i have POTS because sometime i have a low heart rate too up and down along with my blood pressure its never alwayas low or always high isnt that wierd?
