Hi there! I was a few years back diagnosed with osteomalacia. But any pain I felt was mild. But since a year ago I have been suffering from immense backache. An x-ray about a year ago revealed gentle scoliosis. But the doctor at the time said its negligible. My vitamin d levels were at 20. The doctor I went to see just now has prescribed brexin(nsaid), movax(muscle relaxant), opt.D (Vit-D) and neogab (?). All to be taken for the next 7 days and then get a follow-up. I feel like this is too much. Like something is bound to work. Do you think I should go ahead with this?
Thankyou very much doctors. I was recommended for an MRI by someone and received my report just now. There is a central disk bulge at one place and a disication & shortened disc height at another place. My endocrinologist reviewed it and told me I need to go to an orthopedic for advice with this. Any advice that you could give me would be highly appreciated. Or recommend a great doctor with a low fee cause I'v been unemployed for almost a year. I really don't like the orthopedics that I'd been to before. I'd been through three in the course of this past year and a half. And none had told me to get an MRI. One of them actually implied it's all in my head and I should get counseling and they both told me that vitamin D at 20-23 was just fine and did not even tell me to get phosphorus etc checked like how my endocrinologist had had me tested and diagnosed osteomalacia almost 3 years ago even when at the time I did not have as much if any low back pain. At the time the orthopedic I went
