I had back pain . I went to the emergency room because I didn't know where else to go . I received an X - ray and then was advised it was a muscle spasm , take an ibuprofen , and go home . A week later , I couldn't walk . I returned to the emergency room . A different doctor examined me and gave me a prescription and advised me to see a neurologist . After further investigation , it was discovered I had 2 bulging disks and one ruptured disk which caused sciatica . I had to take time off of work , it affected my performance , I had to pay 2 emergency room visits , etc . etc . It was about eight years ago and my back still isn't right and still affects me every day .
