I had my back examined by a sports doctor today. I told him I injured it years ago, that it was gradually getting worse, that I had pain once a month that was triggered by bending down slightly. No other pain besides the back.

He says I'm lucky I'm not pinching any nerves. He says l likely ruptured a disk. An x-ray showed nothing other than that my lowest vertebrae did not develop right after after birth. He said that puts me at risk but did not cause it.

He said he can order an MRI since he is not paying for it, but he doubts anything more would show up that he did not already diagnose. I still don't understand why I only feel pain on my right side of my lower back and not the center if the damage is at the center. He said I can come back if the PT does not help. He gave me the prescription.

My copay was $15. My maximum deductible is $100. Nice to know. Adverse selection, yes I am.

He watched me bend down and says my main issue is I need to bend slower.
